100 Hits: Rock 'n' Roll Love Songs

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
We love everything about love: falling into it, failing at it, redeeming it, finding it and losing it, then finding it again, dreaming about it, wishing for it, and in the case of pop music, singing about it. This five-disc, 100-track collection compiles a large sample of how much we sing about love, with sides drawn from the early years of rock and pop, including hits from Sam Cooke ("You Send Me"), Ricky Nelson ("Poor Little Fool"), and Gene Pitney ("A Town Without Pity") among many, many others, making this a perfect soundtrack to spring and the new hopes and dreams of love it brings.
