    1968's SOMETHING HAPPENING is Paul Revere and the Raiders' SGT. PEPPER. Unlike most "concept albums" from this era, though, it actually holds up pretty well. There's not much of a heavy message to this album, although there's some pointed social commentary here and there. Mostly, Paul Revere and the Raiders--under the direction of singer Mark Lindsay, who became the group's producer and primary songwriter during this period--go more for the recurring musical themes, as in the bits linking "Happens Every Day" to the closing "Happening '68."
    Some of the song titles verge on the ridiculous, as in the incredibly of-its-time "Observation From Flight 285 (In 3/4 Time)" and "Communication (Parts 1 and 2)," but there's a sense of fun and general lack of pretension that keeps things from getting ponderous. Really quite good, even if there's no single song as immediate as any of their classic singles.
