AllMusic Review by

60's Greatest Rock & Roll Hits is a three-disc set that rounds up 36 hit songs from across the spectrum of 60's pop. Some of the styles and sounds represented are girl groups, soul, garage rock, British Invasion, AM pop, R&B and surf. On the surface it looks pretty enticing, especially for the low-price it sells for, but in reality it is a poor collection at any price because with a few exceptions the songs are re-recordings of the original hits. They are all done by the original artists but those artists are past their prime and the musical backing is less then thrilling. If you are looking for the original hits, look elsewhere. This disc is yet another rip-off brought to you by Madacy.
