The essence of the Fireballs, the essence of the 60's

"I had the vinyl album since it's first release. I just had to buy the CD. This album is a perfect picture of the young and carefree 1960's before the protest songs. My favorite tracks, like "Groovy Motions" and "Hurry Hurry" make me want to get out my Lovin' Spoonful, Monkees, and Mama's and Papa's albums. The Fireballs have a sound that is both polished and homespun at the same time. I like the good "enjoy life" attitude of the music. I could listen to this album again and again."
Their two best albums in one package.

"The Fireballs didn't have many hits in the late '60s, but this CD has two of their best songs: "Bottle of Wine" (early 1968) and "Come On React!" (late 1968). "Come On React!" is an extremely well-written song in typical '60s style, and has a very positive, active sound that is alone worth the price of the album. Another appealing song, if very obscure, is "Mr. Reeves" with its mysterious guitar sound, pretty harmonies, and strange story. "Groovy Motions" has an almost excessively '60s sound (Austin Powers would love it) but it also has a good sound and fast tempo and is still appealing."
