AllMusic Review by

This 10-song hits compilation is a cut above the umpteen Frankie Avalon collections on the grounds of packaging -- there is a terrific period cover photo and even brief liner notes by Andy McKaie -- sound -- the tracks have been mastered by Greg Fulginiti -- and selection -- compiler Bob Marcucci, Avalon's manager and the legendary "idolmaker" of the late-'50s teen heartthrobs, reaches beyond the usual Avalon hits (though his six biggest are here) to less successful, but still interesting tracks like "Who Else But You" and "Don't Let Love Pass Me By." On the downside, it's a skimpy collection, a mere 10 tracks.
