"Its sad that most oldies stations nowadays are turning into exact replicas of the so called "Classic" Rock stations (or at least in my region). Hey, Billy Joel and Boston are all well and good, but oldies? No. Rhino's "Frat Rock" series represent what oldies stations should really be putting into rotation. "Twist & Shout", "Hang on Sloopy", "Surfin' Bird", and "Johnny B. Goode" are amoung the many classics here. The version of Del Shannon's "Do You Want to Dance" here is better than the one contained on the same label's "Greatest Hits". As with all Rhino reissues, the linear notes are both fantastic and informative. Its always interesting to find out about those one-hit wonders whose hit song everyone knew and loved, but had no idea where it was coming from. There are a few flaws, as "Chug-A-Lug" and "Good Old Rock & Roll" are out of place (not bad tunes though). And why not include both parts of "What'd I Say?". Overall, this is a great disc for the casual oldies fan looking for a way to own these hits, and is better than Vol. One (I don't own the second volume, but the selection looks like it'd be the best of the series)."
This is the real deal

"About the only thing I didn't like about this CD was the title. There are some real rock essentials on this Rhino CD: "Twist & Shout" and "Shout" by the Isley Brothers, "Tequila" by the Champs, "Liar, Liar" by the Castaways and my personal favorite, "Surfin' Bird" by the Trashmen, to quote Rhino, "among the most inspiringly deranged sounds ever to emerge from a car's dashboard".Rhino has done their usual great job in producing this CD and it comes with a very informative booklet."
