AllMusic Review by

This single-disc compilation tracks England's Spooky Tooth (led by Gary "Dream Weaver" Wright) between 1969 and 1973, when they cut five albums for A&M. There are three cuts taken from It's All About (including a great reading of "Tobacco Road"), seven from Spooky Two (including the big singles "Evil Woman" and "Waiting on the Wind"), a single excerpt from Ceremony, and a single cut from the band's final offering, You Broke My Heart, So I Busted Your Jaw, with the rest coming from The Last Puff. That said, only the first two recordings are worthy of attention and can be found in various incarnations. This is simply too much of a mediocre thing.
