AllMusic Review by

Twenty-one-track compilation of their mid-'60s recordings, split between singles and radio/live performances. The range of quality on their 45s was wide: they could toss off a good beat-punk original one minute ("I'll Be Pleased," their best cut), or fair folk-rock (a cover of Peter, Paul & Mary's "Very Last Day"), and offer limp covers of pop tunes like "Just Walkin in the Rain" and "Halfway to Paradise" the next. The radio/live stuff is rawer and perhaps more characteristic of the band, yet still nothing to set your heart racing, even when judged against the best Swedish bands of the time.
