AllMusic Review by Al Campbell

Classic Rock: Rock Renaissance, Vol. 4 features 21 eclectic album rock tracks embracing British psychedelia, garage rock, San Francisco acid rock, and proto-punk. Among the highlights are the original versions of "Shakin' Street" (MC5), "Fresh Air" (Quicksilver Messenger Service), "When I Was Young" (Eric Burdon & the Animals), "Open My Eyes" (the Nazz), "Abba Zaba" (Captain Beefheart & the Magic Band), and "Space Cowboy" (Steve Miller Band). Time-Life released several other volumes in the classic rock series that are of equally high quality.
