AllMusic Review by

Even given the low standards of pre-Beatles British rock, Dave Sampson was a marginal figure. This 20-track compilation is the definitive document for the curious, with both sides of all five of his singles, all four tracks from his EP, and six unreleased outtakes and demos, including a demo of his sole hit, "Sweet Dreams." Occasional cuts like "I've Got a Crush On You" and "Don't Fool Around" aren't bad early Cliff Richard facsimiles, but the rest is pretty dismissable, especially the gawpy teen idol-type efforts.
