AllMusic Review by

Everything you could want is on this 20-track CD -- all six of Harris' 1962-64 singles (several of which co-billed Meehan), a few rare LP and EP tracks, an unreleased song, a solo single by Meehan -- every last available item, in fact, from Harris' heyday. An at times cool, but more often foolish, glimpse of British rock just before the Beatles changed the rules. It could have probably been boiled down to an EP of the few first-rate tracks without any harm done.
