Best of the Kingsmen? The only problem is, how can you distinguish it from the WORST of the Kingsmen? Let's face it: they were godawful. A lotta throwaway knock-offs on the twelve-bar blues form, which a lot of groups of that era did. When I say they were awful, I say it with a certain fond affection. They were the quintessential frat party kegger band, and if you're my age it'll certainly take you back. Ah, yes, Louie, Louie, a veritable masterpiece of pre-flower-power dreck. Wonderful! I'd suggest just downloading the MP3 of Louie Louie instead of buying this double CD. After a few repetitive tracks, the camp value starts to fade. A little bit of it is fun, but it rather quickly starts to get on one's nerves. I can't in good conscience give this more than two stars, and one of those is just for 'Louie, Louie." Hey, if nothing else it'll give you a fresh appreciation of what the Beatles brought to the rock scene.
