AllMusic Review by

Part of a two-volume set, this brings together 18 classic performances from rock & roll's ground floor era. in addition to mega hits like "Gee," "Come Go With Me," "Speedo," "I Wonder Why," "Blue Moon," "Book of Love," and "Why Do Fools Fall in Love," the collection also features some more obscure sides like "Denise" by Randy and the Rainbows, "I Love You" by the Volumes, "Hushabye" by the Mystics, and "Foot Stomping-Part 1" by the Flares. Although this material gets recycled quite a bit on other compilations, this one's a nicely assembled set and a fine addition to anyone's rock & roll collection.
