The Creation

The Creation - Complete Collection, Vol. 1: Making Time

The first volume of the Creation's two-disc retrospective confirms that producer Shel Talmy's extravagant claims on the band's behalf weren't just hot air.
On singles like "Making Time" and "How Does It Feel" they melted Mod-era r&b in an acid bath of nascent psychedelia that had been heated to a boiling point by the group's scorching instrumental attack. Eddie Phillips' bowed guitar excursions gave their earlier records a distinctive texture, and his barely controlled feedback contributed hugely to their uninhibited vibe, but his replacements kept the fire stoked on later releases. Founding vocalist Pickett spat out his snide, rebellious lyrics with a nasal punky whine, while his successor Garner delivered convincingly soulful turns on the epic "If I Stay Too Long."
