ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Robot Raven’s Greatest Hits, Part One is a wonderful compilation of Robot Raven’s very best original material – with styles ranging from beautiful ballads to their renown rockers. Throw in a couple blues tracks and a country bluegrass tune and suddenly you have 18 of the group’s most cherished songs. Relationship songs like Meet Me in the Middle, Something’s Got to Give, Don’t Shine Me On, Why Don’t You Call?, Don’t Kill the Messenger and One More Day Forever are honest, poignant portrayals that hit right to the heart – elements of what make Robot Raven so fabulous! Some humorous songs can’t help but to make you smile such as the all-out jam Goodbye Elvis, Three Bar Blues or the live version of Finger Lickin’ (available on this collection for the very first time.) But there’s a serious side to Robot Raven too. Biting social and political commentary that truly drives its message home on World Class Bullies, DNA and Hoodrat. Then there are the hymns of self-reflection like Who I Gotta Be, Cup Half Full, Kick Back Relax, What Tomorrow Brings, Half a Mind and Living to Dream. Many of these tunes are only available through this comprehensive greatest hit collection. Robot Raven doesn’t settle down to any genre for long, so their musical library is as diverse and eclectic as any recording group on the planet. No matter what your musical tastes or mood, there’s something on this album you will enjoy. So kick back relax, put this hit collection on a really nice stereo system or quality headphones and be entertained to over an hour of Robot Raven magic!

Methadone for the death of Rock and Roll
Like most people of a certain age, I grew up on FM radio. From the time I was able to tune in a rock and roll station I was listening to the standards of the 60's. They were not exactly the songs of my generation but rather those of my older siblings, but none the less these tunes were firmly cemented into my head as a foundation. The Beatles, the Stones, Beach Boys, Zeppelin , Clapton. The ear worms of an epoch. FM stations played them non stop until the unceasing march of time declared them actually "oldies". I went to college and began a questionable affair with new wave and punk but constantly was drawn to the now gracefully decaying songs that I had first heard in my rec room as a kid, coming from my brother's room. When no one was a round, in my car say, I would covertly turn up the radio on classic songs that would have made my mohawked friends cringe. Lets be honest: we have all heard that stuff too many times. It's like a popsicle being preserved at the smithsonian, easy to love for an afternoon but it is not necessarily an heirloom. What was fun about Robot Raven to me was that fact that it unabashedly echo the sound and harmonies of many of those songs. While not always reaching the heights, it does give comfort to those of us missing the novelty of that popsicle whose flavor we have tired of, from repeated licks. In Robot Raven I heard bits of the Byrds, some proto-psychadelia, British blues rockers of the 70's and beyond. Robot Raven was actually pretty good. Some cuts were really fun (Don’t Shine Me On, DNA, What Tomorrow Brings) and frankly some made me jump for the the fast forward, but what album hasn't had that effect on us. It wasn't exactly the real thing but it was comforting to hear something new that proved the original enjoyment of many years ago wasn't misspent. An injection of calming sedative to make the impending death of the music we once loved more palatable. Pallative Rock? "Greatest Hits" might be an ironic title but then again they did seem to study such things carefully. Good show lads.
