"Originally released in 1966,it was their follow-up to the 'Dirty Water' album(see my review).While I admit it is NO where near as good as 'Dirty...','Hot Ones' is a so-so CD reissue full of mostly the Standells performing covers,from you guessed it,1966.Tracks that I thought were 'okay' include Donovan's "Sunshine Superman",Lovin' Spoonful's "Summer In The City",the Beatle's "Eleanor Rigby" and the Trogg's "Wild Thing".Very little originality here,but hey...plenty of records are like that.You know?For big-time Standells fans,like myself."
I'm sick and tired of listening to you.

"This was the worst of the Standells four albums. It consisted of covers of recent hits, plus their own hit "Dirty Water". ("Dirty Water" was left off of this CD, because it's already on the Dirty Water album.) The covers are ok, but not as good as the original hit versions. The CD adds seven bonus tracks. None of the bonus tracks are "classic" Standells songs. The closest to it would be "When I Was a Cowboy", which was released as a single under the name "The Sllednats", which is "Standells" spelled backwards. Most of the other bonus tracks are unremarkable previously unreleased songs. The most interesting one of these is probably "Standells' Love Theme", which is an 11 minute instrumental. This CD will really only be of interest to Standells fans who want to own all their albums."
