AllMusic Review by

This is a wonderfully lean and economical cross section of the best late-'60s songs by one of England's most engaging pop/rock outfits. Starting with their hit cover of the Beatles' "Good Day Sunshine," the melodies flow out across 40 minutes, covering most of the group's best songs from 1966-1971 and going in some surprising directions (at least, for those who haven't heard most of the songs before); just when you're settled into a soft rock groove, the songs tend to take a short detour into pop (and even Europop) territory, or a pop-style tune will suddenly get just enough serious lead guitar beneath the melody to give it some sharper edges.
