Originally released in 1973, this set of both strong and weak numbers gets a rebirth on CD. The title comes from a line in "Row Your Boat," their most popular recording, a would-be hit that was loved everywhere it got played; but this complex, gentle floater with the breathtaking hook never got the saturated amount of play needed for serious chart action.

It all makes Gently Down Your Stream, the Mints’ near-perfect 1973 LP, more remarkable; its re-release (finally!) by The Numero Group’s new album-oriented imprint, Asterisk, more exciting. With some of the greatest crooners ( Row My Boat ) and dancers ( Keep on Loving You ) ever recorded, Gently is that great anomaly: A must-have soul album. terms: Asterisk The Four Mints. Do you value independent music?
