    No volume of the Golden Age of American Rock 'n' Roll series is more essential than any other one. All have a good range of styles, and a mix of big and small hits, and all are worth acquiring if you want to build a serious rock & roll collection. Golden Age of American Rock 'n' Roll, Vol. 2 has plenty of classics (the Silhouettes "Get a Job," Maurice Williams "Stay," Lonnie Mack's "Memphis," the Rivieras "California Sun," Link Wray's "Rumble") to go along with some neat one-shots (the Bell Notes "I've Had It," Barbara George's "I Know," Harold Kenneth Dorman's "Mountain of Love"). Just as interesting are the minor hits, like the Eternals ridiculous "Rockin' in the Jungle" (up-tempo doo wop with side-splitting bird calls) and the Gladiolas original version of "Little Darlin'" (covered with much bigger success by the Diamonds). ~ Richie Unterberger
