AllMusic Review by

A 27-song anthology drawn from their many singles and albums. Whether backing other singers, playing instrumentals, or performing their own material, the group rarely escaped the classic three-chord progression. What must have been a revelation in the teen ballrooms of the early '60s is a rather flat and repetitious listening experience. This is a fun compilation, but it should not be mistaken for a work of major significance.
