The Mojo Men - Sit Down...It's The Mojo Men (Unreleased songs, rare singles and songs from the unreleased Reprise album) (Sundazed 1995) - Flac & mp3

An 18-song compilation of material from their 1966-68 hitch with Reprise, combining several singles with five tracks from an unreleased album. This fully documents the second phase of the band, when they added drummer Jan Errico and changed from a second rate garage band into a better (but not fully first-rate) pop/folk-rock group. This isn't half bad for the genre, but you can see why they never really distinguished themselves from the San Francisco crowd. It's way too pop to be associated with the Haight-Ashbury scene, a little too weird to be compared to, say, the Association (with the occasional sudden blasts of psychedelic fuzz guitar and baroque production), not as accomplished as the Mamas & the Papas, and gussied up with too many conventional pop string arrangements.
Van Dyke Parks arranged a few of the singles, including their lone hit, "Sit Down, I Think I Love You" (which is here). Most of the material was written by Errico and bassist Jim Alaimo, and although it's a pleasantly worthwhile archival collection, it's not a major find.(allmusic.com)

Hello Folks, have a bad day today, so please excuse me if i should overshoot the mark with words.

Here is a further collection by The Mojo Men. It was released in 1995 by Sundazed and gathering some real nice and interesting songs here. It's a wonderful collection and i think you will like it if you are in pop/folk rock by a ''fully first-rate'' band. :-)
