I don't have a whole lot of the Tokens in my library. The two discs that I own are the RCA 1994 compilation "THE BEST OF" and the Varese Sarabande 2004 compilation "THE VERY BEST OF 1964-1967". I must say I am quite fond of this folk group.
As this CD includes the ablum "It's a happening world" and 11 bonus tracks, it's a very generous offering. But to listen to the whole CD from the beginning to the end is a rather excruciating and schizophrenic experience. One minute it's folk, next minute it's sunshine/Baroque pop or surf rock. Similarly, the vocal harmony often switches from four-part folk-rock to multi-layer Beach Boy and/or the late Beatles without any warning. Track 17 "Animal" is a great example of what goes wrong: the group is trying so very hard to sound "hip", it ends up sounding like a caricature of themselves.
