Collectables’ Come On Down to My Boat contains the entirety of Every Mother’s Son’s eponymous debut, which included their huge hit “Come On Down to My Boat,” plus three bonus tracks — “Put Your Mind at Ease,” “Pony With the Golden Mane,” “No One Knows” — which were all minor hit singles in the years following their lone Top Ten hit. “Come on Down to My Boat” is one of the great one-shots of the ’60s, and not surprisingly, there’s nothing nearly as memorable on the remainder of the record, but there are some enjoyable pop-rockers in the same vein.

It may not contain much from the group’s second record, but the fact that it contains all of the group’s hits, plus a representative selection of lesser-known material, makes this a fine summation of the group’s career.
