AllMusic Review by

Dick Hyman made records with every kind of keyboard instrument, but Happening! may be the only one with harpsichord. It has the mid-1960s "mod" or "now sound" associated with such tunes as the "Tom Jones" theme, "England Swings," and "The 'In' Crowd." Beatles covers "Michelle" and "Yesterday" are part of a strong finish to the album. "The Ballad of the Green Berets" includes whistling. Is it truly happening? No, but it has its charm.
