AllMusic Review by

This budget ten-song selection delivers the goods in a big way, featuring Bobby Lewis' "Tossin' and Turnin'," Del Shannon's "Runaway," Dion's "Runaround Sue," and Ben E. King's immortal "Stand By Me." Also aboard are the Marcels' "Blue Moon," Gary U.S. Bonds' "Quarter to Three," and hits from James Darren, Shep and the Limelites, Chris Kenner, and the Shirelles. Like the other volumes in the set, this also features top-flight transfers, making this one to pick up the next time you see this one -- or any of the other volumes -- in the bin.
