AllMusic Review by John Bush

Original Sound's Golden Oldies series boasts digital remastering, a claim often made by labels attempting to pass off shoddy sound with a few hi-fi buzzwords. Surprisingly, these tracks do sound better than in past recreations, though Original Sound could've done music fans an additional favor by stretching out the CD's to more than a bare half-hour running time. The third volume is a party-starter, focused on up-tempo nuggets like the Chiffons' "He's So Fine," Bobby Day's "Rockin' Robin," and the Edsels' "Rama Lama Ding Dong."
