Twenty songs from the 1964-65 World Artists era, including the hits "Yesterday's Gone," "A Summer Song," "Willow, Weep for Me," and "If I Loved You." It doesn't have any of their Columbia material, but it's the most thorough overview of their early career on CD. At its best, the folk-pop is reminiscent of a softer Peter & Gordon. However, rock-oriented listeners will find the easy listening-oriented covers, like "The Girl from Ipanema" and "September in the Rain," hard to swallow. The total absence of original dates, songwriting credits, and historical liner notes is inexcusable.
