Big Beat's previous Rationals compilation, "Think Rational", delivered some long-overdue kudos to these seminal Michigan rockers. Here yo find the group's eponymous 1970 album in the same profusely annotated and illustrated manner.After leaving erstwhile mentor Jeep Holland of A-Square Records, the Rationals continued with their exciting blend of rock and R&B, absorbing along the way the heavier influences of the scene surrounding the legendary Grande Ballroom in Detroit. The result was the classic 1969 single Guitar Army and a long overdue full album on the Crewe label, the soulful contents of which demonstrated the breadth of the group's talents. This Big Beat reissue adds the rare single versions of Guitar Army and Sunset plus two previously unissued tracks, including an amazing live-in-the-studio take of Wang Dang Doodle.

Thank you very much RatBoy. No es una de las obras maestras de los 60s pero si un disco que se merecía esta reedición de Big Beat. Maravilloso como es habitual en este gran blog. Rockin'

A great album, though I dig the early stuff a little better.

Thanks for posting!


Unfortunately my file broke half way through. Anyone else have this problem?

Actually the download worked for me the second time around, so false alarm!

Thanks again for the killer post.
