AllMusic Review by Jason Ankeny

Volume three in MCA's Rock Around the Oldies series is centered primarily in the latter half of the '60s, assembling a mixed bag of psychedelic nuggets (the Strawberry Alarm Clock's "Incense and Peppermints"), bubblegum hits (Tommy Roe's "Dizzy") and bouncy pop smashes (the Grass Roots' "Midnight Confessions"); best of all, however, is a cut recorded near the beginning of the decade -- the Shirelles' girl-group classic "I Met Him on a Sunday."
