The ten songs on side one are a pleasure for fans of the early Searchers sound, and also serve as a showcase for the group's songwriting talents, as all but one are originals. Rarely surfacing on album, let alone on A-sides, it was only on B-sides that the band deigned to or was allowed to pen their own material.
It's not like these are brilliant works on the level of Lennon - McCartney or Ray Daviesbut they're very pleasant numbers highlighting the Searchers ' strengths: melodies, harmonies, and clean arrangements. Side two is a different story, showing the group trying to keep apace of '60s trends toward more sophisticated lyrics and arrangements with far less success than, say, the Hollies.
