AllMusic Review by

This collection brings together 15 tracks from the early days of rock and pop in the 1950s and '60s. Teen romance and young love were the driving themes of tender classics like Bobby Darin's "Dream Lover" and Ritchie Valens' "Donna." Other songs like Ben E. King's immortal "Stand by Me" and Clyde McPhatter's "A Lover's Question" represent the more R&B side of the era. Also featured are tracks by Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons, the Drifters, and Ray Charles.
