AllMusic Review by

Twelve sides recorded by the small Wheel's 4 label in the 1960s, based in Dearborn, MI. It's records such as these that leave the hapless reviewer grasping for adjectives with which to distinguish this from dozens, nay, hundreds of similar '60s garage compilations. It's below average in the scheme of such anthologies, many of the cuts boasting a generic, organ-guitar-layered sound. The most interesting selection, if forced to make a choice, is the Pagens' "Mystic Cloud," which has a bit of a West Coast early psychedelic spacy feel to its harmonies.
