AllMusic Review by

Sixteen-track compilation drawn from early singles and an unreleased album. Some of these songs are quite good: "Green Eyed Woman" is a respectable garage stomper, and their baroque pop arrangement of Randy Newman's "I've Been Wrong Before" is exquisite. Also, they do a better job on the obscure Lennon-McCartney composition "I'm in Love" than the Fourmost (who did the British hit cover of this song, which the Beatles never recorded). Nothing else here is especially memorable or embarrassing. The eight songs from their unreleased album on side one are mostly well-worn covers, and hence rather boring; their latest tracks show them moving into S.F.-style psychedelia without much distinction.
