Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Tim Sendra
Collectables' Rock & Roll's Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 is a 25-song collection of '50s and '60s oldies staples that leans heavily on the sound of doo wop and is seemingly thrown together without much thought as to pacing or flow.

This disc is a reissue of a 1999 Collectables release titled The Millennium's Greatest Hits, Vol. 2: WOGL Oldies 98.1, so if you already have that one you don't need this. Anyone else looking for a decent collection of '50s and '60s hits might, though.
