    The 25-track CAMEO PARKWAY: THE GREATEST is the culmination of an extensive reissue campaign that took place over the course of 2005 and 2006 and reintroduced to the public almost the entirety of the Philadelphia label's sterling back catalog. While many of the individual artist reissues are essential in their own right, this single-disc overview of the label's biggest hits will suit the casual fan just fine. Among the early R&B and rock-&-roll classics included here are "The Twist" by Chubby Checkers, "Bristol Stomp" by the Dovells, Dee Dee Sharp's "Mashed Potato Time," and perhaps the most essential of all, ? & the Mysterians' seminal and long-out-of-print garage nugget "96 Tears."

    Mojo (Publisher) (p.121) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[The label] achieved massive success with acts that ranged from rockabilly singer Charlie Gracie and '50s teen idol, Bobby Rydell, to dance-craze doyen Chubby Checker..."
