Description by OLDIES.com:
The Knickerbockers were a New Jersey group who became notable as one of the first American bands to successfully evoke the sound of The Beatles and other British Invasion acts. When they hit the charts with "Lies", many fans thought they were hearing a new song from Fab Four. This collection brings together the best of the work they recorded originally for Challenge Records in the mid-'60s.

Liner Note Author: Mark Marymont.
Recorded in Hollywood, with songwriting contributions from such top sessionmen of the day as Glen Campbell, Jim Seals, and Dash Crofts, this is, aside from the first-rate title track, an extremely generic mid-'60s set, with only one group original other than "Lies." The Knickerbockers never found an identity, alternating between frat rock, flaccid pop/rock, and strange Wall-of-Sound productions in which the producers apparently had visions of turning them into the Walker Brothers. ~ Richie Unterberger
