Produced by Larry Page
The Troggs 1975 : R. Presley : vocals / R. Bond : drums / T. Murray : bass / R. Moore : electric guitar (+ P. Green : accoustic guitar )

In 1975 The Troggs were reunited again with Larry Page ( well known producer of The Kinks and The Troggs plus running the successful labels Page One and Penny Farthing ) - a move which further boosted their rejuvenation and yielded a brace of magnificent singles and two excellent ( if sadly underrated ) albums.
"Good vibrations" virtually defies description: an outrageous arrangement of one of rock's very icon , it deserved to have been a massive U.K. hit : but it was years ahead of his time !
"Full blooded band" is a long-forgotten Trogg original -a good-natured, humorous statement of exactly who and what the Troggs are all about : "...a beer sinkin' , hard drinkin' full blooded band ..." Selling the concept of a good night out, this is clearly a dig at the pretentiousness of mid-70's rock .In fact their 70's live set provides the bulk of the material here : R&B/R&R classics sit quite comfortably alongside Trogg originals - and their treatments of what are on the face of it well-worn chestnuts is unbelievable . They add a devastating freshness , vitality and validity to numbers like "No particular place to go" (one of my favorites) , "Got lovin' if you want it " and notably Peggy Sue - the latter is a remarkably brave effort and says a lot about the Troggs : who else would have the confidence to tackle something which Buddy Holly had personalised so comprehensively ? And the arrangement of "Wild thing" here will come as a surprise : a loping , reggae beat .

The Troggs' version of Chuck Berry's 'No particular place to go' is just sensational.
