First-ever complete anthology of highly-regarded early 70s American proto-power pop band Crabby Appleton. Includes both albums, alternative mix/non-LP singles and the restoration of two brief tracks only included on original 8-track release. After the demise of Curt Boettcher's late 60s project The Millennium, gifted singer and songwriter Michael Fennelly joined forces with LA club band Stonehenge to form Crabby Appleton. Signed to Elektra, they made their debut with the glorious 'Go Back', a hit single that married a mid-60s pop sensibility with early 70s studio advances to stand as a proto-power pop classic. A slightly different mix of the track featured on their self-titled debut album, which attracted rave reviews from the underground press and sold reasonably well. But the band were unable to follow 'Go Back' with another hit single, and after second album 'Rotten To The Core!' made little impact, they disintegrated. The first-ever complete compilation of the band's work, 'Go Back: The Crabby Appleton Anthology' includes both albums and a raft of singles (including rare mono mixes and non- LP tracks) as well as two miniature tracks that were only included on the first album's 8- track release and are therefore making their first digital appearance. Featuring a new 5000 word essay on the band, and housed in a stylish digipak, 'Go Back' is the definite document of a fine group that deserve to be remembered as far more than one-hit wonders.
