The Complete Recordings, by the Paley Brothers

February 17, 2014

Though Andy Paley later enjoyed acclaim as a producer, the power-pop group he led with his brother Jonathan faded, as so many of them do. But this collection makes a joyful case for revisiting the Paleys’ catalog. The collection features the group’s entire output on Sire Records, including the bluesy, infectious “Hide and Seek” from the group’s first EP. Also included are 11 unreleased tracks, including “Baby, Let’s Stick Together,” recorded in 1978 with producer Phil Spector and the Wrecking Crew.
