Despite including some fairly well-known bands from the genre, this volume is just an average release for this series. The influence of the heavyweights is perhaps too apparent at times, with the Rolling Stones, the Byrds, and the Zombies all being mimicked, with varying degrees of success. Obviously, one should start with the original works by any of these popular '60s artists before contemplating this compilation. But even then, the Blue Things, the Barracudas, the Basement Wall, and the New Breed — the best groups on this volume — are best heard on their own albums rather than on this release.
