AllMusic Review by

Collectables' Encyclopedia of Doo Wop, Vol. 3 is an attractive package that allows the doo wop fan access to 100 songs spread out over four discs. These are songs that haven't been burned out by years of repeated plays on oldies radio stations, and include "Let's You and I Go Steady" by the Pearls, "Kneel and Pray" by the Paragons, and "Island of Love" by Lee Andrews and the Hearts. It's also the collection to get if you need to write a dissertation on girls' names featured in doo wop songs: "Blanche," "Cindy," "Diane," "Yvonne," "Linda," and on and on and on.
