AllMusic Review by

The soundtrack to Barry Levinson's coming-of-age film Liberty Heights mixes classics from the '50s with new material from soul singer Brenda Russell and rock visionary Tom Waits. Lonnie Donegan's "Rock Island Line," Big Joe Turner's "Shake, Rattle & Roll," Elvis Presley's "Blue Moon," and Frank Sinatra's "Honey Don't" are among the highlights of the '50s-era songs, while Russell's "Baby Eyes" and "When Love Walked In," and Waits' "Putting on the Dog" and "It's Over" add a contemporary touch to the soundtrack, but don't detract from the overall nostalgic feel of the collection.
