Presenting: The Bachelors [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
In an odd twist on the way these things usually work, this U.K. release is a CD reissue of the Bachelors' first American album, Presenting: The Bachelors, with the addition of seven tracks that appeared on non-LP singles in 1963 and 1964 in Britain. The format might be something of an excuse to round up and repackage the Bachelors' earliest recordings, but if that's what you want, this reissue does a good job of it. The Presenting: The Bachelors LP itself only differed a little from their first U.K. album, the big difference -- and one that helped the quality of the record -- being the addition of "Diane," a U.K. chart-topper that was by far their biggest hit in the ...

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
In an odd twist on the way these things usually work, this U.K. release is a CD reissue of the Bachelors' first American album, Presenting: The Bachelors, with the addition of seven tracks that appeared on non-LP singles in 1963 and 1964 in Britain. The format might be something of an excuse to round up and repackage the Bachelors' earliest recordings, but if that's what you want, this reissue does a good job of it. The Presenting: The Bachelors LP itself only differed a little from their first U.K. album, the big difference -- and one that helped the quality of the record -- being the addition of "Diane," a U.K. chart-topper that was by far their biggest hit in the U.S. (where it reached the Top Ten), and its follow-up single "I Believe." As heard on the original LP, the Bachelors were an anomaly in the first wave of the British Invasion (even disregarding the fact that they were actually Irish), as they had little to do with rock or even pop
ock. Instead, they were a close-harmony vocal group favoring adult-oriented pop and standards, with a heavy dash of corny country-folk thrown into the mix. [The seven bonus tracks are more of the same, albeit with a yet slightly more dated early-'60s pop feel, though five of the seven tracks hold some interest for British Invasion historians as marking some of the first productions by Shel Talmy (later famed for working with the Kinks and early Who). Roger Dopson's liner notes give a good basic history of the group's '60s prime.]
