AllMusic Review by

Put together by the record collector's magazine Discoveries, this 14-track collection reflects the wants of the magazine's readership. The emphasis is on first time stereo to CD with three of the tracks ("Rebel Rouser," Reg Owens' "Manhattan Spiritual" and Johnny & the Hurricanes' explosive "Reveille Rock") holding that cherished distinction. The other 11 tracks present rare stereo mixes of pop fare like "Calcutta," "Yellow Bird," "The Enchanted Sea," "Alley Cat," "Gravy Waltz" and "Midnight in Moscow." Certainly much more pop than rock aboard, but rare and stereo nonetheless for the obsessive audiophobe and collector alike.
