AllMusic Review by

If you like your vintage hits from across the spectrum, then the Oldies But Goodies series is for you. This fourth volume sticks to the plan with 17 cuts that range from the Big Bopper's "Chantilly Lace" to Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Proud Mary," and in between, this in-flux mix takes in Jerry Lee Lewis, the Turtles, Sandy Nelson, the Shirelles, and Jeannie C. Riley. The one- (or maybe two-) hit wonders are on display, too, notably Gloria Mann and her "Teenage Prayer" and Toni Fisher with "The Big Hurt." All that's needed now is a soda fountain next to the record player.
