AllMusic Review by

An oldies collection that does more than simply round up the usual suspects, this brings together 18 tracks spread across several decades under the umbrella of the twin anthems of summer and sun. Besides the usual fare like "Summertime Blues," "Summer in the City," and a pair of non-hits from the Beach Boys, the other highlights of the set includes "California Sun" by the Rivieras, "Summertime Summertime" by the Jamies, "Summer Means Fun" by Bruce and Terry, "Beach Party" by Annette, "Hot Fun in the Summertime" by Sly and the Family Stone, and Billy Stewart's "Summertime." An interesting and quirky set of tunes that holds together nicely.
