AllMusic Review by

Containing "new stereo recordings by the original artists" (thankfully noted on the front and back of the package, though the back adds "...or one or more members of the original group), K-Tel Presents: Back to the 60's offers no adequate substitutes for the original versions. Most of these re-recordings are flat-out bad, made with cheap equipment and only a fraction of the necessary passion (and sometimes skill). Even if this disc did feature nothing but the original versions, it would be far too random to be recommendable. Featured tracks include the Zombies' "She's Not There," Chubby Checker's "Let's Twist Again," and the Turtles' "Happy Together."
