AllMusic Review by

Basing their sound on Brothers Four harmonies tracked over Chuck Berry riffs, the Beach Boys created a bright, summery style that came to symbolize summer, surfboards, and hot rods, and it was a template copied by numerous singers and groups. This set collects 25 such Beach Boys facsimiles, including fun sides from the Rip Chords, the Dovells, the Hondells, the Surfaris, the Surfettes, and many others.
