Album Notes
“Mama Told Me Not To Come” Reimagined By Funky Indie Act Five Townz

Independent rock/soul band Five Townz recently released a high quality version of the classic “Mama Told Me Not To Come” by classic rockers Three Dog Night. The vocals are raspy and loose from the get go on the verses, as if Kid Rock and Pitbull wrote a track together. The chorus is really where the range and versatility shine through, and you can tell right away that Five Townz would be an energized party band. The production is stellar and the harmonies really shine, especially during the fantastic outro when things get more soulful. Three Dog Night are not the easiest band to cover, but Five Townz do it flawlessly; the guitars are funky and tight and the musicianship seems more than up to snuff.

Though it’s currently a challenge finding much information on this new act, let’s hope they provide their listeners with more ways of finding them and hearing their music shortly. For the moment, you can hear “Mama Told Me Not To Come” at Five Townz’s Jango page, where they appear to be doing quite well. Alternatively you can visit the band’s Myspace page.

Mama's gonna love this song
The other day I heard Three Dog Night's original Momma in theatrical trailer for a new Disney flick (Mars Needs Moms) just released. Disney execs probably did know about it because Five Townz is still under the radar. Since the film is animated and 5ive T's modernization probably appeals more to younger viewers than TDN's, perhaps this one would have been a much better fit. They are both excellent versions, but I especially like the guitars better in 5ive Townz, it clearly speaks to my heart, perfect gift for your kids as well.

Beeindruckende Stimme.
Ich hab das Lied zum ersten mal bei einem Freund gehört und mir ist sofort die Stimme des Leadsängers aufgefallen. Sie wirkt irgendwie melodisch ohne weiblich zu klingen. Dazu noch die Leadgitarre, die dem GEsang perfekt folgt.
Das alles, gemischt mit den Off Beat Rhythmen im Hintergrund ergeben einen ungewöhnlichen Mix.Ich erwarte sehnsüchtig das Album. :)


Fun song, get it now
This is a song that tells a fun story. Its good to listen to this when you are not being distracted so you can really enjoy it. The attention to detail make this one of the best songs I've listened to. In my opinion these guys are much better than other artists in this genre, but that's just my opinion. Make some time, listen, and enjoy these guys. This is a fun piece of music that I find myself cruising in my car with.
