AllMusic Review by

There's something sketchy about calling a collection AM Radio: One Hit Wonders and then including re-recorded versions of the artist's big hit, seemingly ignoring the fact that the one hit that earns these acts the one-hit wonder status is the version that was played on the radio in the first place. Having a hit depends on several vital factors, and some of those are intangible and even accidental, so any attempt to revisit the song later invariably misses the boat, and even if that boat still floats, it isn't the same boat anymore. You can't go home again, but you can pass on this collection.
