AllMusic Review by

Collectables' History of Rock: The 60s, Pt. 3 is a random but wonderful 24-track collection of pop and rock gems. It touches on doo wop (the Belmonts' "Where or When," Don & Juan's "What's Your Name"), frat rock (the O'Kaysions' "Girlwatcher," Bob Kuban & the In-Men's "The Cheater"), early soul (Gene Chandler's "Duke of Earl," Jerry Butler's "Let It Be Me"), R&B (Lee Dorsey's "Workin' in a Coal Mine," Ernie K-Doe's "Mother in Law"), girl group (the Shangri-Las' "Leader of the Pack," the Dixie Cups' "Iko Iko"), country-pop (Sue Thompson's "Norman"), and just plain great songs (Dion's "The Wanderer," the Turtles' "She'd Rather Be With Me"). The collection plays like an hour or so of really fun and diverse oldies radio, something that is getting harder to find on your radio dial every day.
