ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hey hey hey! Let’s sing Shambala!

New York-based band Five Townz undertook this remake of the 70ies fave Shambala.

Wow! I thought when I first heard the song, I want to write a review. Usually, I’m not into seventies music and remakes make me yawn most of the time. But this one’s quite different! I didn’t want to go into the review biased so I resisted the urge to refresh my memory of the original song. I just let the single hit my ears, and yeah it did hit! Shambala has great melody and lyrics, it’s a happy song, a "feelgood," and the spirit of the songs couldn’t have been captured better than it was by Five Townz here.

I love those bright guitars, the really smooth vocalist with the husky voice that you could go on listening to endlessly: Add to that a bright background choir, unlike anything done today—the production is modern, yet has reminiscences of the seventies sound, nice and bright: a real sing-along to be played at your pool party with lots of shaking and dancing going on. I am hard put to say what this sounds like. The best I can come up with is a mash-up of the Beach Boys and The Byrds transferred into the year 2012!

A short visit to Five Townz web presence doesn’t tell me much about the band but I find out how popular the song is, having reached well over 90, 000 plays in just a few months!
Awesome, isn’t it? I recommend checking these boys out for more—you might get addicted!

For those interested in the history of the song: It was originally written by songwriter Daniel Moore in 1973 and published by Universal Music Group (which also mastered the Five Townz version). It was hit single for Three Dog Night and BW Stevenson almost at the same time.

uplifting, fun, and puts you in a good mood
When I first heard about the Five Townz from a social networking site and how they were re-inventing classic cover songs, I have to admit I was a little skeptical. Seeing all the reviewers high ratings intrugued me. My skepticism changed when I first heard the music. As a matter of fact, it was this song (Shambala) that introduced me to their sound. This track gets my toes tapping and hands clapping while I'm humming along (OK, sometimes singing along when I'm alone). You can't help but get hooked on the catchy chorus, which gets stuck in your head. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Hell yeah! Shambala is uplifting, fun, and puts you in a good mood. It is good mood food for the body, mind and soul. No longer a skeptic, I've since became a fan. I am rating Shambala by 5 Townz 5 stars because of shooting music and healing melodies.

Erinnert an die Psychedelics
Der Song erinnert mich sehr an die psychedelischen Songs der späten 70er. Übereinandergelegte Vocaltracks und verworrene Beats im Hintergrund.
Für jeden der diese Zeit genauso genossen hat wie ich und jeden der in diese Art Musikeintauchen will, ist dieser Track genau das richtige. Five Townz werden noch richtig groß!
Für den Preis ein Pflichtkauf :D
