By the time the Rubble series reaches its tenth volume, you've begun to suspect that the tracks are being selected more on the basis of the quirky band names and song titles than the music. Well, that's undoubtedly being too harsh. But it's doubtful many listeners are going to be as enthusiastic about the third-tier '60s psychedelic Britpop of the Glass Menagerie, the Orange Seaweed, Orange Machine, and Velvett Fogg as the compilers. All tracks were licensed from Pye Records; the Clique and the Game did have some excellent singles, but the tracks here aren't their best efforts.
