    Glad you posted this. I remember when I was a kid my best friend's older sister had this album and I remember, anytime she wasn't around, we could listen to her records. This was one of them we listened to. I've got a "best of" these days but I think I might pick this one up now that I was reminded of it.

    " I Just Want To Celebrate" and "Hey Big Brother" are my favorite Rare Earth tunes.

    Great album!

    "I Know I'm Losing You" is probably my favorite tune on the album, and makes for great house cleaning music. :D
