AllMusic Review by

When Bobby Rydell sings "all the hits" on this 1963 LP, we're not talking about his hits, but those of other entertainers. The dozen tracks range from well-known to minor hits by various pop, rock and R&B artists, from the Earls' "Remember Then" to a vocal version of the Tornadoes' "Telstar." Rydell's Vegas-inflected pop-rock style imposes a consistent sound upon the diverse fare, and consequently the results are more interesting and individualized than the typical package of cover versions. The variety of material and Rydell's talent as a vocalist make this an entertaining album for those who might enjoy hearing a handful of hits remade the Rydell way.
