All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The Best of the Original Mono Recordings is a single-disc distillation of 2010's nine-disc box The Original Mono Recordings, picking 14 tracks from the eight albums on the box and adding the non-LP single "Positively 4th Street." The inclusion of this 1965 Top Ten hit makes this disc enticing to collectors, although it does suggest that the box would benefit from a brief bonus disc of singles containing that song, "Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window," "If You Gotta Go, Go Now," and "Mixed-Up Confusion."

And if they don't, they will at least have a terrifically entertaining little collection in their possession.
