Best of 60's Sock Hop

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Baby Boomer Classics: Sock Hop collects 14 pop and rock & roll dance favorites from the '60s, spanning from early '60s ravers like Freddy Cannon's "Palisades Park" and the Shangri-Las' "Leader of the Pack" to late-'60s cuts like "I'm a Believer" and Three Dog Night's "Celebrate." The collection doesn't necessarily gel into something cohesive, but it's as entertaining as listening to a well-programed oldies station that will play "Party Lights," "Wild Thing" and "Tossin' and Turnin'" next to "Rescue Me," "Runaway" and "Lies."
