Album Notes
Originally released on Atlantic (8285).MC5: Rob Tyner (vocals, harmonica, maracas); Fred "Sonic" Smith (guitar, harmonica, organ, background vocals); Wayne Kramer (guitar, piano, background vocals); Michael Davis (bass instrument, background vocals); Dennis Thompson (drums, tambourine, percussion).Additional personnel: Leon Henderson (tenor saxophone); Charles Moore (trumpet, flugelhorn, background vocals); Rick Ferretti (trumpet); Pete Kelly (piano); Skip Knapp (organ); Bob Seger (percussion).Liner Note Author: Dave Marsh .Unhappy with the more cultivated sound of their sophomore release BACK IN THE U.S.A., the MC5 returned to the barnstorming rock & roll that characterized their debut, KICK OUT THE JAMS, on their third and final album, 1971's HIGH TIME. While JAMS was a live recording, HIGH TIME was created in the studio, but does manage to retain the rough and spontaneous edge of their debut. Unfortunately, the album didn't serve as the MC5's big commercial breakthrough (although it deserved to), and the quintet broke up in a shroud of bickering and drug abuse soon after.The songwriting is once again experimental and unpredictable, fueled by the band's barely contained playing. While the songs are pretty obscure outside of the MC5's rabid cult following, almost all of them easily hold their own. Most of the tracks exceed the five-minute mark, such as the groovy "Future/Now," the anthemic "Baby Won't Ya," and the percussive album-closer "Skunk (Sonically Speaking)." The punk rocker "Poison" and the bluesy "Gotta Keep Movin'" are shorter but just as exhilarating. HIGH TIME is a criminally underrated early-'70s rock gem.

Guaranteed to play perfectly.
