AllMusic Review by

Bellevue's extensive Beach Party series, like its other multi-volume series, is littered with poor studio re-recordings and inferior live versions. While the label notes on the back of each disc which tracks are live, it does no such thing with the re-recordings, making each volume impossible to recommend -- whether it sells for a basement-bottom price or not. Even though each disc has a theme, the selections are often arbitrary. Among the selections on this particular volume: Mungo Jerry's "In the Summertime," Lynn Anderson's "Rose Garden," Tina Turner's "Stand by Your Man," the McCoys' "Hang on Sloopy," and the Equals' "Baby, Come Back."
