"The SUNDAZED label apparently owns the entire Knickerbockers catalogue, but as far as I can gather, this was the first compilation of said material they put out, back in 1989. It's still a great collection, although presumably it is obselete to a degree. These guys were *good*; they did the best Beatles impersonation (stylistically) around, and several of these tracks are illegally catchy. I'm stumped at the inclusion of the weaker (IMO) tracks from their mostly-covers album, though; I think their Kinks covers beat out Johnny B Goode any day..."
I got a one-track-mind...

"The Knickerbockers shouldn't be overlooked as they have been for so long (perhaps it's a bit late for that!), and this compilation is a teriffic way for a new Knickerbockers fan to find out what this band was all about.
You get all the Beatle-sounding material: Lies, One Track Mind, Just One Girl, I Must Be Doing Something Right, and Stick With Me. Their other material shines just as brightly: They Ran for their Lives, High on Love, and My Feet are Off The Ground. Some weaker spots are here: Jerk Town, the Chuck Berry Medley, Money, however they can easily be looked at as a progression. The Beatles had the Anthology, right? Think of this as your own personal Knickerbockers Anthology.
I'll go four stars for this one, simply because it's the best Knickerbockers compilation out there - if you're looking for somewhere to start, start here."
