CD Reviews

Not bad, well priced compilation from the great Rhino Record
TimothyFarrell22 | Massachusetts | 07/25/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"While it isn't flawless, its easilly beats out most other oldies comps of the nature. If you are a diehard oldies fan, you probably already own most of the good stuff on this comp. However, if you're a casual fan looking for some good party music, than this is a good purchase. "Louie Louie", "Wolly Bully", and "Double Shot of My Baby's Love" are obvious picks, but still are great tunes. "Nobody But Me" and "Just Like Me" were unexpected but welcome additions. And one of the main reasons for purchasing this compilation was the Gentrys' classic "Keep On Dancin'". One of my favorite songs ever, this is the easiest way of obtaining this supremly underrated one hit wonder (hey it kicks the crap outta other wonders such as "Macharena" and "More More More"). Than again, this isn't a flawless collection. "Dance to the Music" is a great song, but is out of place, as is "Reelin' and Rockin'" (why not choose another Berry tune). I always found "Wild Thing" to be overrated, but I understand it's inclusion. Lastly, why include the Dynatones' version of "Shout" instead of the Isleys? Its the best party rock of the 50s and 60s, not cover rock of the 80s. Despite the flaws, this is still a fun compilation to own. A good buy for the casual oldies fan."
In with a bang, out with a whimper

"This CD starts out really strong, keeps it going for about 3/4 of the way through and then, on the last few songs just wimps out. Can you imagine them playing Sly and the Family Stone in "Animal House"? Neither can I. Nevertheless, if you can program your CD player to leave off the last few tracks, this CD is worth it."
