AllMusic Review by

Six-song, seven-inch EP of two cuts apiece by three Swedish '60s bands that were obscure even by that mini-genre's standards: the Zettlers, the Trappers, and Ringo & Mainers. It's decent, but not thrilling, raw Eurobeat. The Zettlers are the poppiest, with "Baby Don't Leave Me" betraying a Searchers influence; Ringo & Mainers the toughest, particularly on the rumbling "You Better Go"; and the Trappers, who cover "Rock and Roll Music" and "Shake, Rattle and Roll," the least memorable.
