Boasting remastered sound and an altered track listing, 2007's THE REMAINS essentially replaces Legacy's earlier BARRY & THE REMAINS disc. The 20-track set presents many of the finest mid-1960s recordings by the sorely underrated Boston-based garage-rock act the Remains, who were led by vocalist/guitarist Barry Tashian. Highlights include the urgent Animals-like single, "Don't Look Back" (which was featured in the lauded NUGGETS box set), and the gloriously jangly "Why Do I Cry," along with an outstanding cover of Don Covay's R&B classic "Mercy, Mercy." For true aficionados of '60s U.S. garage bands, this collection is indispensable.
