AllMusic Review by

Making their home in the Main Showroom of Waikiki's Outrigger Hotel, the Society of Seven seem a diverse bunch with nerdy 1970s haircuts and even nerdier pasts in yet less remarkable high-school bands. Flashback is about 1950s nostalgia, so here we have (after the obligatory "More," anyway) groovy 1970s wah-wah pedal covers of earlier "oldies." Sappy, horrible, yet winsome as any lounge-act album, Flashback serves less as a reminder of the era of bobby socks than as a mystical clue to the age of polyester. The unself-conscious jacket art deserves an award, the band...a calendar.
