AllMusic Review by

The Cadillacs only had one hit, 1956's near immortal "Speedoo," and they tried that template again and again, especially with "Speedoo Is Back," an obvious sequel. Both of these songs are here, as well as similar sides like "I Wonder Why," "Gloria," and "Zoom," and a whole bunch more. But there are also some nice surprises here, too, like the funky little R&B punch of "Sugar, Sugar," that show just how good this group could be outside of the doo wop genre, and thankfully, they did doo wop pretty well, too. This is a surprisingly varied set with lots of tracks for a mid-line price, and it makes a perfect introduction to this interesting vocal group.
