"The Kingsmen were a good "garage rock" style band in the 1960s. The were arguably the most successful of the garage bands, since they had seven songs that made it into the Hot 100. This album is a typical one for them, since it contains two chart singles and a bunch of cover songs of other people's hits. Other than the hits, "Little Latin Lupe Lu" and "Death of an Angel", the highlights here are the three original songs that are included ("Long Green", "And You Believed Him" and "Give Her Lovin'"). Singer Lynn Easton was actually a decent, if derivative, songwriter. As for the cover songs that make up the bulk of the album, they are okay, for the most part. But none of them come close to matching the versions that were recorded by the original artists. Unless you are a big Kingsmen fan, you would be advised to get a "best of" CD, rather than one of their original albums."
