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: Color Me Badd's "I Wanna Sex You Up," Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise," the Heights' "How Do You Talk to an Angel," and the Average White Band's "Pick Up the Pieces."
