AllMusic Review by

Beach music is such an open-ended genre that it essentially ends up being any music that is played in the seaboard dance clubs of the southeast, but the heart and soul of it tends to be a mixture of R&B, soul, and even doo wop from the 1960s, as this two-disc, 36-track set makes clear. A veritable dance party in a box, I Love Beach Music features such classics as Gene Chandler's enduring "Duke of Earl," the Swingin' Medallions' "Double Shot (Of My Baby's Love)," Betty Everett's "Shoop Shoop Song (It's in His Kiss)," and Little Anthony & the Imperials' "Goin' Out of My Head," among others. Fun stuff
