The "Rock 'n' Roll" volume of K-Tel's Back to the '60s series, like all the other volumes, is based on inferior re-recordings of hits that were released during the decade in question. As with the other volumes in the series, it's a cheap way to obtain a lot of music, but you're going to get what you pay for. Some of the tracks on this disc include American Breed's "Bend Me, Shape Me," the Beau Brummels' "Just a Little," Gary Lewis & the Playboys' "This Diamond Ring," and the Grass Roots' "Let's Live for Today." Only the Count Five's "Psychotic Reaction" and the Turtles' "It Ain't Me Babe" are originals.
