AllMusic Review by

There's very little rhyme or reason behind the selections made for Collectables' Ultimate Summer Hits -- a series of ten-track compilations that is very skimpy and not particularly attractive to the eyes. Though all of the songs on the discs were hits, and are the original versions by the original artists, the discs skip across decades and styles with absolutely no sense of logic. Ultimate Summer Hits: Summer Sizzlers includes Ricky Nelson's "Poor Little Fool," Paula Abdul's "Rush Rush," the Beach Boys' "I Get Around," Bobbie Gentry's "Ode to Billie Joe," Jim Croce's "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown," Duran Duran's "The Reflex," and Wilson Phillips' "Hold On."
