AllMusic Review by

A brief collection of late-'60s guitar rock, with emphasis on the druggier end of things, this set manages to touch a lot of bases, from the (relatively) rougher side of the Monkees with "Circle Sky" to the everything-in-the-red primitiveness of the Stooges with "I Wanna Be Your Dog." Also included is the most explosive song Love ever did, "7 and 7 Is," as well as the shortened single version of that song your older brother used to listen to all the time on his headphones, Iron Butterfly's "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida." No Jimi Hendrix, though, or even Eric Clapton, for that matter.
