AllMusic Review by

Bellevue's Saturday Night Party series, like other releases from the label, features only a handful of original recordings per volume. Poorly recorded live versions and studio re-recordings are far more common. The label specifies which selections are live, but it does not bother to note which ones are inferior studio remakes. That alone is a case for ignoring the whole series. Among the many reasons to avoid Saturday Night Party: Cocktail Party Hits are substandard versions of Bing Crosby's "True Love," Maurice Chevalier's "Hello Beautiful," Peggy Lee's "Let's Do It (Let's Fall in Love)," and Eddie Calvert's "Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom."
