AllMusic Review by

21 Rock & Roll Favorites, Vol. 1 is a better-than-average single disc highlighting the pop and doo wop singles released on the Laurie label in the late '50s and early '60s. Along with a few of the tried-and-true radio classics by Dion, Del-Vikings, and Crests are less-than-obvious inclusions by the Five Discs, Dean & Jean, Bernadette Carroll, and the Four Coins. These are the original recordings from the vaults of Laurie and, with the exception of the hideous cover art, are recommended, along with the companion volume, 21 Rock & Roll Favorites, Vol. 2.
