AllMusic Review by

Single-disc CD of two 1965 albums that is a little more interesting than you might guess. Lucky 'Leven has some fairly tough rock material, and Folkbeat is an early folk-rock outing that has covers of songs by Bob Dylan, Tom Paxton, and Buffy St. Marie. Both efforts boast tasteful Tex-Mex rock arrangements and make pleasant listening, even if they don't add up to anything terribly creative or compelling.
