    Compilation producer: John Broven.
    Contains 26 tracks.
    Composer: Jon Broven.
    The concept driving this 26-cut compilation is to take the B-sides of 26 early rock and roll hits from the 1950s and early '60s. Some good songs were placed on these flipsides, and some of the ones anthologized here (Larry Williams' "Slow Down," Jack Scott's rockabilly stormer "Leroy," the Everlys' "I Wonder If I Care As Much," Bobby Day's "Over and Over") made a deservedly substantial impact in their own right. But there's a reason that most B-sides are B-sides; little here stands up to the well-known hits on the top, or is even worthy of belated recognition by collectors. In fact, most of this is formulaic (if spirited) early rock & roll, and the random mix-and-match of rockabilly, doo-wop, instrumentals, and R&B by Little Richard, Link Wray, the Skyliners, and a bunch of one-shots makes for jumpy listening. ~ Richie Unterberger
