AllMusic Review by

Only Rock 'N Roll 1960-64: #1 Radio Hits is an excellent budget-priced collection, featuring 20 tracks -- including stone-cold classics like Jan & Dean's "Dead Man's Curve," and Ben E. King's "Stand By Me," the Drifters' "There Goes My Baby," and the Angels' "My Boyfriend's Back," Dee Clark's "Raindrops," Brenda Lee's "I'm Sorry," and Fats Domino's "Walking to New Orleans" -- from the early '60s. It's not necessarily a comprehensive collection, but if you want a sampler from this era -- and if you need a good-quality version of one or more of the hits on this disc -- this is a very entertaining listen and is a terrific bargain.
