AllMusic Review by

It's doubtful there's much of a market, even among collectors, for groups which sound like Jimmy Gilmer & the Fireballs imitators. This act, which like Gilmer & the Fireballs were produced by Norman Petty, is probably the best bet in that direction. It's lightweight mid- to late-'60s pop/rock, often with an AM harmony pop feel, with the Petty/Fireballs element supplied by the crude synthesizer-like fills and George Tomsco's assistance with songwriting and (probably) guitar parts. Only a couple of the tracks are original compositions.
