AllMusic Review by

Recall's Stray Cats compilation Runaway Boys, not to be confused with EMI's superior Runaway Boys: A Retrospective '81-'92, is a two-disc collection that features tracks from 1994's over-produced comeback album Choo Choo Hot Fish and 1996's collection of rockabilly covers Original Cool on disc one, and an 18-track live set on disc two. This is a compilation for diehards only. Casual fans looking for a snappy set that includes all of the band's signature tunes like "Rock This Town," "Stray Cat Strut," "(She's) Sexy + 17," and "Rumble in Brighton" would be better off with Capitol's 2000 Greatest Hits release.
