AllMusic Review by

Oldies but Goodies: Legendary Hits is an attractive package for consumers interested in AM radio hits of the '50s through the '70s. Spread out over 15 discs, all of these songs are recognizable even if the performers themselves are not. More than likely the casual music lover will only want one-hit wonders that appear throughout this set, including the Teen Queens' "Eddie My Love," Curtis Lee's "Pretty Little Angel Eyes," the Shields' "You Cheated," Alicia Bridges' "I Love the Nightlife," Dale & Grace's "I'm Leaving It All up to You," Music Explosion's "A Little Bit o' Soul," Terry Stafford's "Suspicion," Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs' "Wooly Bully," the Tune Weavers' "Happy, Happy Birthday Baby," and the O'Kaysions' "Girl Watcher." Unlike those of similar budget-line box sets, these songs are not re-recordings by the artists who made them famous; these are the original versions.
