AllMusic Review by Heather Phares

All Night Long collects '60s hits like the Troggs' "Wild Thing," the Lovin' Spoonful's "Daydream," and the Four Seasons' "Let's Hang On." However, the collection's emphasis on British pop and rock singles such as Unit Four Plus Two's "Concrete and Clay," the Kinks' "Sunny Afternoon,' the Yardbirds' "For Your Love," the Merseys' "Sorrow," and the Who's "I Can't Explain" gives it a distinctive direction not hinted at in the title. Georgie Fame, the Moody Blues, Procul Harum, the Mindbenders, and Dusty Springfield -- along with Yanks like the Righteous Brothers -- all contribute tracks to this enjoyable compilation of swinging '60s sounds.
