Everything about Paul Revere and the Raiders was contrived and corny, except their music. There's no rational excuse for why they shouldn't be routinely counted among the most accomplished, consistent American rock groups of the mid-'60s. With every single in '66 and '67, Good Thing, Ups and Downs, the frantic, eruptive Him or Me-What's It Gonna Be, Melcher's production became more inventive, more confident, filled with hooks and unexpected shifts in dynamics

What would a typical Raiders session be like with Joe J. Freddy, and Keith? Basically, we’d go in the studio and sit around the piano. I’d show the guys the tune. Joe Jr. usually had a set of sticks or brushes, and he’d be playing along on a bench or chair. Keith and Freddy would probably have guitars to kinda figure out the chords. Terry and I might come up with a hook together, like Him or Me, What’s It Gonna Be?. I would write the rest of the song. Unfortunately when it came out, the Raider fans - the ones who knew who Paul and the Raiders were - didn’t understand it. It was a little bit past what they were used to. The new fans I was trying to gather in saw the name Paul Revere and the Raiders and thought, ‘That’s not gonna be very heavy’ and didn’t even pay attention to it. Collage kind of got lost in the shuffle.

Paul Revere & the Raiders is an American rock band that saw enormous mainstream success in the 1960s, best-known for hits like "Indian Reservation (The Lament Of The Cherokee Reservation Indian)" (1971), "Steppin' Out", "Kicks", "Let Me" (1969) and "Hungry" (1966).

And their hits - "Steppin' Out," "Just Like Me," "Hungry," "Him or Me - What's It Gonna Be," and "Kicks" in particular - are now seen by compilers as bold, unpretentious pieces of '60s rock & roll with a defiant, punk edge. Paul Revere was born Paul Revere Dick on January 7, 1938 in Harvard, Nebraska. He learned to play the piano as a boy, and developed a keen appreciation for the work of Spike Jones & His City Slickers. He joined his first real band while in his teens, and was later joined by 16-year-old Mark Lindsay.

In late 1972, the Raiders prepared what was to be their next album, only to have it rejected by management at Columbia Records. A promo was released featuring a song from the album, "Love Music" which did manage to chart, however only reaching on the Billboard charts. To date, the album has not seen a legitimate release, but several songs from the album have found their way as bonus tracks onto various Raiders' compilations. The Flamin' Groovies tackled three Raiders songs ("Him or Me, What's it Gonna Be?", "Sometimes" and "Ups and Downs") and The Morrells did a country-tinged arrangement of "Ups and Downs" as well. The Paisley Underground, garage rock revival, and grunge movements would all acknowledge the Raiders' influence.
