Bobby Vee with Strings and Things/Sings Hits of the Rockin' '50's

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
This is a pretty cool combination of two Bobby Vee albums from 1960/1961 that are stronger together than they were separately. With Strings and Things is the softer of the two, though it has its cool rock & roll moments, while Sings Hits of the Rockin' '50's generally focuses better on rock & roll, even if it veers decidedly toward pop.
