AllMusic Review by

Sony Special Products' Teen Dreams compilation is a budget-priced collection of wholesome teen idol/Brill Building Pop confections from the 1950s/early 60s that harkens back to the days of soda fountains, heartache, and soap box derby races. Standard fare like the Four Voices' "Sealed with a Kiss" and "Take These Chains from My Heart" by Champ Butler will be familiar to "oldies" radio junkies, while lesser known cuts from the likes of the Duprees ("Let Them Talk") and George Maharis ("Teach Me Tonight") will appeal to the generation who grew up listening to them.
