AllMusic Review by

Yeaah's three-volume Teen Town USA series repackages a series of the same name released only a couple years prior by the Lost Gold label. Like the other two volumes, Teen Town USA, Vol. 3 surveys the '50s and '60s for regional hits and obscurities recorded by young artists. Some of the songs included are Johnny Rivers' "That Someone Should Be Me," Eddie Reeves' "Cry Baby," Jimmy Boyd's "Cream Puff," the Beau-Marks' "Billy Went a Walking," Sammy Salvo's "Lovin' All Night," Bobby Lee's "Woe Is Me," and Pete Shrayder's "Where's the Girl for Me." The majority of these 30 songs have been mastered from their original 45 rpm incarnations, and although the material is pretty uneven, it should please devout fans of the period as an enjoyable curiosity.
