No Good To Cry - The Best Of The Wildweeds
Artist: The Wildweeds
Title: No Good To Cry - The Best Of The Wildweeds
Label: Confidential Recordings (www.confidentialrecordings.com)
"Their vocals purred with emotion and their tunes vibrated with color and light."
These days, The Wildweeds are mainly viewed as the band that included Al Anderson, who later made a name for himself with the heralded roots rock combo, NRBQ, then as a respected Nashville songwriter. But this Windsor, Connecticut band actually aquired a sizeable degree of regional stardom during their stint and even netted a number one hit single on various New England radio stations with "No Good To Cry" in the spring of 1967. In contrast to the majority of suburban white kids playing in bands at the time, The Wildweeds never referenced acts like The Kinks or Paul Revere and The Raiders as role models. No, these fellows were seriously into soul music. Yet they touted electric guitars, so their material projected a fairly strong sense of teen appeal. Along with "No Good To Cry," other cuts on the album you'll find hard to resist are "Happiness Is Just an Illusion," "It Was Fun While It Lasted" and "Can't You See That I'm Lonely." On mark with the artists that inspired them, The Wildweeds were masterful communicators. Their vocals purred with emotion and their tunes vibrated with color and light. A touch of horns, some string arrangements and resonant organ fills fired the band's output. "No Good To Cry - The Best of The Wildweeds" emphasizes how terrifyingly assured and sincere they were. Their work remains as vital as ever and should not be missed at any cost.
