AllMusic Review by

Only Rock N Roll: 1980-84: #1 Radio Hits is an excellent budget-priced collection, featuring 20 tracks -- including radio favorites Blondie's "The Tide Is High," and Robbie Dupree's "Steal Away," Toni Basil's "Mickey," the Go-Go's "We Got the Beat," Foreigner's "Urgent," Air Supply's "Lost In Love," Gary Numan's "Cars," Grover Washington, Jr.'s "Just the Two of Us," the Stray Cats' "Stray Cat Strut," and the Cars' "Magic" -- from the early '80s. 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.
