AllMusic Review by

Bellevue's extensive Beach Party series, like its other multi-volume series, is littered with poor studio re-recordings and inferior live versions. While the label notes on the back of each disc which tracks are live, it does no such thing with the re-recordings, making each volume impossible to recommend -- whether it sells for a basement-bottom price or not. Even though each disc has a theme, the selections are often arbitrary. Among the selections on this particular volume: Starship's "We Built This City," Loverboy's "Working for the Weekend," Big Country's "In a Big Country," Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart," and Berlin's "Take My Breath Away."
