"I have been a fan of the Knickerbockers ever since first hearing "lies" in 1965 and have followed the group throughout their career. It's great to finally have a comprehensive collection on CD in pristine sound. This compilation includes most "B sides" as well as some rare album tracks. Tracks such as "one track mind" in stereo are pure heaven, and the booklet is very informative, including interviews with the band members. The knickerbockers were compared with the beatles and although they did not have that groups range and depth, the energy and talent shine through. Just listen to "stick with me" and "high on love" and you will be swept away by the harmonies and great guitar work on display. This is the only collection you need."

"KNICKERBOCKERISM! contains 36 tracks (as opposed to the 20 listed above). The correct track listing follows: DISC ONE Lies/ Just One Girl/ I Can Do It Better/ Come On And Let Me/ One Track Mind/ I Must Be Doing Something Right/ Can't You See I'm Tryin'/ Please Don't Fight It/ She Said Goodbye/ Give A Little Bit/ We Got A Good Thing Goin'/ Is This What You Want/ The Pad And How To Use It/ Playgirl/ Like Little Children/ Bite Bite Barracuda/ Lies (alt. backing track)/ Harlem Nocturne (alt. take). DISC TWO Stick With Me/ High On Love/ Rumors,Gossip, Words Untrue/ Love Is A Bird/ She's Gotten To Me/ I Love/ Chapel In The Fields/ Can You Help Me/ Please Don't Love Him/ You're Bad/ Guaranteed Satisfaction/ Sweet Green Fields/ What Does That Make You/ As A Matter Of Fact/ My Feet Are Off The Ground/ They Ran For Their Lives/ Come And Get It (demo)/ High On Love (alt. backing track)."
Nice collection, but...

"A nice collection (although, due to the way songs are liscensed in the US, both discs have a LOT more space on them that isn't used) that covers a large portion of the Knickerbockers' best songs, most in remixed form. Taken as that, it's great. However, it *is* expensive, and it falls between "Greatest Hits" collection and "Rarities" collection, making it seem a tad half-baked, and the expense (As I've mentioned) doesn't translate into very many songs. Add to that a bizarre mixup (the wrong version of "My Feet" is used), and you've got something that ends up being pretty much geared towards collectors only. If you want a hits collection, the earlier Sundazed comp should do just fine."
