2008 reissue. The title kind of gives the game away here, it being somewhat a game of two halves! The Tokens are pictured on the cover in off-duty mode, casually dressed and with a cigar on the go. Side One consists of more baroque reworkings of modern Folk Rock standards, covering label mates Melanie and the Lemon Pipers creditably, as well as doing a stripped down beauty of a cover of 'Don't Worry Baby', which surely influenced the Beach Boys later live revamps of their early repertoire. Side Two revisits The Tokens past in the manner of their later Oldies Are Now! Project, with their first two hits 'Tonight I Fell in Love' and 'The Lion Sleeps Tonight', and their Soft-Pop masterpiece 'I Hear Trumpets Blow' among others, being reinvented in the style of the first half of the album. 14 tracks. Rev-Ola.
