If you were to try to make a best of of a group, and do the best job you could, this would be the product. The Kingsmen were America's Rolling Stones until the new wave of American groups in 1966 started to get all the airplay. All the big hits are here, as well as their flipsides, often which were as good as the hits. Also a few killer LP only songs. The sound quality of the recordings here is as good as you could get as well. The Kingsmen were one of the first rock groups to use the heavy hammond sound, and many of their best songs feature it. They created Americas best party song Louie Louie, and many of their other hits while not as well known today, are very hard hitting. Many of their covers also were as good, and in some cases better than the originals. Hit singles, and a few should have been hit singles include, Money [better than the original version], Little Latin Lupe Lu [with crunching organ], Killer Joe [with chopping fuzztone], the Jolly Green Giant [the groups second biggest hit], Death of An Angel [cool Ska], Trouble [a garage athem from 1966], Annie Fannie [about the magazine cartoon girl] , Little Sally Tease [ a fuzz masterpeice], and Long Green [which sounds like a keg party athem]. Their are some great organ jams as well such as on Rosalie. The best B side included was Haunted Castle the flip of Louie Louie. The only thing missing is their later psychedellic 45's, and a few excellent LP tracks, like Do You Love Me, or Shake a Tail Feather. I would give this CD an A+++ Trivia the bass player on their last studio LP, Up and Away [which from the song Trouble was included on this CD] was Kerry Magness, who also played on the Doors album waiting For The Sun.
