AllMusic Review by

Primarily a collection of early rock era hits (with the curious exception of First Class' 1974 hit "Beach Baby"), Rock Around the Oldies is a brief but consistent collection of vintage hits -- much of the material has been endlessly anthologized in the past, but even overexposure can't dim the brilliance of Buddy Holly's "That'll Be the Day" or Johnny Ace's "Pledging My Love."
