All Music Guide - Ron Wynn
The second release in Rhino's rock instrumentals series moves into the 1960s, again presenting a wide array of material. There's jazz-tinged fare by pianist Ray Bryant, roadhouse blues/boogie from Lonnie Mack, the Ventures' signature surf tune "Walk Don't Run," and another Duane Eddy floor-shaker, "Because They're Young."

It's shorter than the first volume and has a bit more fluff, but is still quite valuable.

    Love that Ol' Timey Rock and Roll

    Some of these cuts bring back the best memories. I can listen to this over and over. I got the CD because of 'Apache' but the other tunes are just as amazing. If you like true rock and roll this is it.
