AllMusic Review by

Subtitled "30 Great A & B Sides," and that's exactly what it offers, accumulating all the tracks from their first 15 singles from 1958-61. (Believe it or not, it isn't their whole discography; the group kept recording for another four years.) It in effect functions as a greatest-hits collection that probably contains more than almost anyone wants at once, including "Tequila, " "Too Much Tequila, " and derivative variations of the "Tequila" style that were occasionally pretty entertaining, like "Jumping Bean, " "Twenty Thousand Leagues, " and "Panic Button."
