WCBS FM: Motown, Soul and Rock N Roll - Soul

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Tim Sendra
KFRC Oldies: Motown, Soul & Great Rock n' Roll: Rock n' Roll is a varied and quite solid 25-song collection of chart-toppers from the '60s compiled by Joe McCoy of WCBS. Now why a DJ from WCBS compiled a disc that is billed as a presentation of KFRC oldies is a question that will only nag at the most retentive of music fans. The rest will just be happy to enjoy the music, as it is first-rate from beginning to end. McCoy draws tracks from many different styles: folk-rock the Mamas & the Papas' "Monday, Monday," Scott Mackenzie's "San Francisco", girl group the Angels' "My Boyfriend's Back," Lesley Gore's "It's My Party", British Invasion Manfred Mann's "Do Wah Diddy ...

Any disc with those last three songs on it is worth owning, but wait, there's more! Len Barry's jubilant "1-2-3," the Guess Who's moody "These Eyes," Spiral Starecase's "More Today Than Yesterday," and Tom Jones' "She's a Lady" are some additional highlights. There is nothing here that would provoke a second look from a collector, but anyone looking for an action-packed hour of great "good-time oldies" from the '60s could do a lot worse than picking this collection up.
