AllMusic Review by

Jukebox musical Dreamboats and Petticoats extends its widely popular companion music series with the double-disc set Dreamboats and Petticoats: Summer Holidays. Like the series' past releases, Summer Holidays features feel-good songs from the late '50s and early '60s, this time naturally with a summer theme. Alongside classics from Cliff Richard and the Shadows, the Beach Boys, Bobby Darin, Elvis Presley, and Billy Fury, listeners will also enjoy lesser-known tunes from Bobby Goldsboro, the Shangri-Las, and Patti Page. From AM pop and the Brill Building, to rock & roll and early R&B, to girl groups and Motown -- and of course surf sounds -- Summer Holidays evokes the feeling of summers gone by, days of innocent fun and nights cruising along the coast.
