Then: Totally Oldies, Vol. 3

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Hal Horowitz
After exploring the '70s in Vol. 1 and the '60s in Vol. 2, the third volume in what seems to be an ongoing series drops back another decade to compile 18 tracks, almost all from the late '50s. Except for the Tarriers' -- whose members included a young Alan Arkin -- "Banana Boat Song" which charted Top Five at the same time Harry Belafonte's version was popular, this is an obvious and not especially imaginatively selected compilation of well-worn hits.
