AllMusic Review by

Using the widest perimeter of what could be considered classic rock, Sony Legacy's four-disc Box Set Series: Classic Rock spans three decades of popular rocks hits. From iconic mid-'60s tunes like Jefferson Airplane's "Somebody to Love" and the Youngbloods' "Get Together" to '80s pop-metal hits like Warrant's "Cherry Pie" and Loverboy's "Working for the Weekend," this compilation covers a wide variety of memorable rock music. While some of the choices seem dictated by access to licensing rights (Al Kooper's "Season of the Witch," but not Donovan's?), overall there are some classic cuts here both well-known and slightly more obscure, making this a 40-song value.
