(4 out of 5 stars)
"Interesting pairing of UK (Hollies) and US (Byrds) bands, featuring 5 tracks by each. The Hollies' great calypso charmer, "Carrie Anne" starts it all off in fun fashion. Of particular note is an excellent B-side, "Everything is Sunshine". Byrds tracks include the cynical "So you want to be a rock & roll star", apparently a jab at the manufactured Monkees, who at the time were cutting into The Byrds sales figures. No rare tracks, but a good sampler for casual listeners."
