"All five volumes in The Wonder Years collection are a little uneven, but Movin' On boasts some really great classic tracks that far outweigh the weaker songs scattered throughout the album. Roger Miller's Little Green Apples is just awful to my ears, but The Turtles' Happy Together, Bryan Hyland's Sealed With a Kiss, and The Four Tops' Walk Away Renee are all certified classics. Even they pale in comparison, though, to not one but two of the greatest songs ever released by Smokey Robinson and the Miracles: for me, this album is worth having for The Tears of a Clown and The Tracks of My Tears, especially if you don't have any Smokey CDs in your personal collection already. These two songs also call up some great early memories for this fan of The Wonder Years television series. Tears of a Clown was played at the dance on episode 6, the final episode of the show's memorable "preseason," while Tracks of My Tears can be heard on episode 16. Happy Together was featured in both episodes 40 and 70, Sealed With a Kiss appeared in episode 114, and Walk Away Renee was featured in episode 109. As far as I know, Little Green Apples, Maureen McGovern's The Morning After, and The Moody Blues' Tuesday Afternoon (Forever Afternoon) were never used in any episode of The Wonder Years.
Of course, any Wonder Years fan knows that Snuffy Walden's compositions are the true heart and soul of the show's great music, and this album contains two beautiful little pieces of music that easily take you back to those magical, halcyon days spent with Kevin, Paul, and Winnie."
Great buy overall...

"Nice little selection--worth the money, though I'd suggest buying the entire 5-disc set. Brought back some memories when I heard these songs, and I'm thrilled to own it."
