AllMusic Review by

Although much too brief at just ten tracks, the ninth volume in MCA's Vintage Collectibles series is otherwise a fine collection of hits from the pre-Beatles era; much of the material is fluff (Brian Hyland's "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka-Dot Bikini" and Barry Mann's "Who Put the Bomp [In the Bomp, Bomp, Bomp]," for example), but the standouts -- Chuck Berry's "Sweet Little Sixteen," Bobby Bland's "Turn On Your Love Light" and Dale & Grace's "I'm Leaving It Up to You" among them -- are true classics.
