When England's esteemed Guardian newspaper assembled their list of 1000 Albums to Hear Before You Die, the 1973 debut album from Blue Ash made the grade amongst all the established classics pretty remarkable for an obscure record that was out-of-print for over 30 years! Well, Collectors Choice has rectified that injustice, so this critically acclaimed LP can take its rightful place in the power pop pantheon. Signed to Mercury by legendary rock critic/publicist Paul Nelson, this four-piece from Youngstown, OH was among the first power pop bands alongside Badfinger, Big Star and Raspberries to revive the virtues of mid- Sixties rock against the then prevailing tides of prog excess and singersongwriter self-absorption. No More, No Less showcases the band s knack for melodic three-minute pop tunes delivered via a breathless attack that melded the Byrds jangle with the Who s rhythm section and the Fab Four s harmonies, as heard on the first cut and best-known track 'Abracadabra (Have You Seen Her?)'.
