features in: Album Chart of 1966Album Chart of the Decade: 1960s

TJR says

These young cats, influenced by The Animals and Them, seem to have a mature ear for good music, and their debut LP showcases their own unique brand of garage-psychedelia. The memorable lead track “(We Ain’t Got) Nothin’ Yet” rips it’s bass-line riff directly from Rick Nelson’s “Summertime”, whilst “I’ll Go Crazy” brilliantly re-invents the James Brown original. It’s top notch re-invention like this that keeps music moving forward healthily…
