AllMusic Review by Al Campbell

Collectables' 40 Years of Jukebox Hits: The 50's, 60's, 70's & 80's is an attractive package for consumers only interested in hits of these eras. Spread out over 20 discs, these 282 recognizable cuts are by the artists who made them famous and are not re-recordings. However, a major flaw of this huge set, besides lack of decent packaging, is the sheer number of CDs, which could have been cut in half if the full 80-minute capacity of each disc were utilized. More than likely casual music lovers will only want the "big hits" from a certain era anyway, and will find the individual sets more to their liking and in line with their budgets.
