This was the first album to be released by Kiwi duo The Chicks.

The A-Side:
It starts of with their first single "Heart of Stone". A decent number which nicely opens the album. Following this is one which seems standard for Viking recording artists "You Don't Talk About Love". Viking label mate Dinah Lee also recorded this on her first album "Introducing... Dinah Lee" a year previous.

The third track is the highlight on this LP, as this is THE song that got them noticed and was a big in 1965, The Hucklebuck. A very fast moving number which rightfully became a smash hit. This is a cover version you've just gotta hear!.

Tracks 4 and 5 "Ticket To Ride" and "I Don't Want To Spoil The Party" respectively are both Lennon & McCartney originals, sung in female form. They are faithful to the originals, and a very nice renditions. the Jewel Atkins classic "The Birds & The Bees" finishes off the A-side with this album, an ok cover, but probably the weakest song on the side.
