The Bunch - Rock On (1972, Reissue 2003)

Review by J.P. Ollio:
The Bunch was a loosely knit group of English folk-rock veterans who recorded this disappointing set of oldies covers. The Bunch exhibits no shortage of enthusiasm for their renditions of Berry, Presley, Lewis, and Holly hits. However, the record suffers from both sloppy playing and obvious song selections. Not surprisingly, the album's high points are the two most obscure songs: Dion's "My Girl the Month of May" (sung by Richard Thompson), and Sandy Denny's heartfelt reading of Buddy Holly's "Learning the Game."
