AllMusic Review by

A mid-'60s Chess compilation of dance tunes with four from the Vibrations: "The Watusi," "The New Hully Gully," "Continental With Me," and "Let's Pony Again." Jimmy McCracklin serves up his slow, shuffling "The Walk" and Steve Alaimo exhibits some blue-eyed soul on "The Twist" and "Let's Twist Again." Lamont Anthony (Dozier) does "Popeye the Sailor Man" accompanied by the Voicemasters, Gene & Wendell stomp "The Roach," and the Tunetoppers featuring Cookie Brown invite you to do "The Madison." There are also Ned Kendricks & the Swans' "Mashed Potatoes" and the Dells' forgettable "The Bossa Nova Bird."
