AllMusic Review by

Buyer beware: This label has a nasty habit of packaging lame re-cut versions of original hits and trying to pass them off as the real thing. This volume is no exception -- a cheap, cheap budget reissue featuring eight (!) oldies, five of them being modern re-cuts. The only originals aboard are "Ginger Bread" by Frankie Avalon, "Talk to Me, Talk to Me" by Little Willie John, and "Nobody But You" by Dee Clark. If record companies wonder why '50s rock & roll reissues are grounded in such low sales, it's because of fraudulent packages like this one glutting the bins.
