I Love Rock & Roll, Vol. 1 is a budget-priced compilation of classic rock & roll from the '50s and '60s featuring the original recordings by the artists who made them famous. While only ten tracks per disc seems a bit skimpy in the age of the 80-minute CD, the lineup is top-notch: "Rockin' Robin" by Bobby Day, "Palisades Park" by Freddy Cannon, "At My Front Door" by the El Dorados, and "Little Bit O' Soul" by the Music Explosion. Also included are fine tracks by the Trashmen, Vanity Fair, the Chiffons, the Box Tops, the Angels, and the Dells.
