Overview

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. Luckily, the quality of songs is so high that the careless approach doesn't lessen the pleasure to be had from listening to classic tunes like the Four Seasons' "Sherry," the Angels' "'Til," the Marcels' "Blue Moon," and the Contours' "Do You Love Me." One might argue about the selection of Percy Faith's "Theme From a Summer Place" as one of rock & roll's greatest hits, but it is the only misstep. 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.
