AllMusic Review by

The Oldies but Goodies series rolls on with more chart-toppers from the '50s and '60s. This time around the mix runs the gamut with a 17-track set that wends its way through classic '50s rock & roll (Little Richard, Eddie Cochran), surf (the Beach Boys, the Surfaris), soul (the Supremes, Marvin Gaye), and pop (Paul Anka). And, of course, there's plenty of guffaw potential to be had, as the Coasters tell the tale of "Charlie Brown" and Bobby Darin gets wet on "Splish Splash." The perfect way to have fun without getting hurt.
