AllMusic Review by

The Dutch Jan & Dean collection The Original offers 18 of the duo's best-known performances, including "Surf City," "The Little Old Lady From Pasadena," "Dead Man's Curve," "Ride the Wild Surf" and "Surfin' Safari." Though it's not as deep or diverse as Surf City: The Best of Jan & Dean, The Original compares favorably to most of the other Jan & Dean retrospectives on the market.
