AllMusic Review by

2013's Rock This Town: The Collection marks the 35th anniversary of the formation of the Stray Cats. It features 23 tracks from the rockabilly trio -- more than needed for most casual fans, but it's great for more dedicated fans of their most popular works, or those who want a deep mix of the best of the Cats in their random-play collection list. It contains nearly all of the first two albums and by extension all but one track from 1982's breakthrough Built for Speed ("Lonely Summer Nights" was left behind). "18 Miles to Memphis" from Rant N Rave with the Stray Cats also made the cut. Conspicuously missing: "(She's) Sexy + 17."
