AllMusic Review by

The soundtrack to CBS TV's miniseries Shake Rattle and Roll celebrates rock & roll's multigenerational appeal. Modern-day artists like Blink 182, Terence Trent D'Arby, K-Ci & Jo-Jo, Chante Moore, Rashaan Patterson, and Dicky Barrett of the Mighty Mighty Bosstones perform early rock classics like "Long Tall Sally" and "Ain't That a Shame." The miniseries tells the story of the HartAches, and six of the group's songs are included on the album, including "Detour," "Side by Side," "One Bad Stud," and "Baby, Here I Am." Dicky Barrett performs the title track; Blink 182 covers "Dead Man's Curve"; and K-Ci & Jo-Jo, Jesse Powell, and Rashaan Patterson perform "Tears on My Pillow" as the Velvet 4. Original oldies like the Platters' "Only You" and the Chords' "Sh-Boom" add to the soundtrack's authenticity.
