AllMusic Review by

Several installments in Collectables' Jukebox Giants series have the appearance of catering toward play lists of specific oldies stations across the States. Philadelphia's WOGL and New York City's WCBS each have three volumes in the series, and then another three "general" volumes aren't tied to any particular station. They are no different than the three volumes dedicated to Boston's WODS. In other words, the first WOGL volume, the first WCBS volume, the first general volume, and this disc are exactly the same, offering the same 14 songs. The first volume features Maurice Williams & the Zodiacs' "Stay," Bobby Day's "Rockin' Robin," the Dell Vikings' "Come Go With Me," Jerry Butler and Betty Everett's "Let It Be Me," the Turtles' "Happy Together," and Frankie Avalon's "Venus."
