Teen Beat, Vol. 4

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
In some ways this series actually gets more interesting with the fourth volume, possibly because the need to fill up so much space another 30 tracks worth with instrumental rock oldies meant that more unusual items had to be excavated. There are a few big hits Bill Justis' "Raunchy," Bill Black's "Smokie", yet most of these are singles that didn't even make it into the Top 100; over half missed the listings altogether.

II" used in the Pulp Fiction soundtrack, and Lonnie Mack's "Chicken Pickin'." There's also the peculiar belly-dance rock of the Hollywood Persuaders' "Drums-a-Go-Go," which was created by a pre-Mothers Frank Zappa with Paul Buff.
