AllMusic Review by

Sony’s two-disc Summer Holiday: 40 Summer Classics from Yesteryear collection presents a flurry of warm-weather pop jams culled from the '50s and '60s. Not simply content with randomly grabbing any song that includes the word “summer” in it (though there are a few), the compilers have put together a solid blast of beach blanket/teen heartache nostalgia featuring tracks from the Everly Brothers (“Walk Right Back”), Roy Orbison (“Only the Lonely”), Petula Clark (“Downtown”), Herman’s Hermits (“I’m into Something Good”), and more.
