AllMusic Review by

This generous 20-track collection transports one back to 1963, and it's obvious the pop charts were surprisingly varied (as they usually always are, actually, no matter what the year) and full of little gems. Here we have Bobby Vee's best song, "The Night Has a Thousand Eyes," the Swinging Blue Jeans' swaggering "The Hippy Hippy Shake," and the Beach Boys' sunny "Surfin' U.S.A.," to name just a few of the delights included in this fun set that seems perfect for a long drive down memory lane on a bright summer's day.
