There are currently five different "Teen Beat" CD's in the series, I think. The challenge in compiling each CD remains quite a difficult one : To put together 30 pop instrumentals , and make the final product consistently entertaining. There probably weren't much more than 30 really top instrumentals in the whole history of 50's and 60's pop music that really stand out, so you have to expect a few bits of twelve-bar fluff thrown into the mix. But it's worth it. On this compilation there are some special items. "El Rancho Rock" a quality recording by The Champs, which was the follow-up to "Tequila", the fascinating original of "Cast Your Fate To The Winds" by Vince Guaraldi and Floyd Cramer's "Flip, Flop and Bop" all fall into that category. And if one or two tracks cause your finger to stray towards the "skip" button, then so be it. Overall, it's a good buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 6 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD
I differ from the first reviewer in that there are certainly more than 50 decent instrumental Rock N Roll tracks to emanate from the 50/60's but agree that this is a great selection overall despite a smattering of reptition and lesser quality tracks this still remains a great CD and series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mostly Obscure Cuts - But Gold To Any Hard-Core Collector 29 Aug 2007
By AvidOldiesCollector - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Unlike Volume 1 in the series, which provides more familiar hit singles from that era than obscure non-hits (7 of 30), this one dwells primarily on the obscure, and for that reason will be much more attractive to the collectors of all and any R&R instrumentals from the Golden Age. No less than 17 of the 30 fit that description (tracks 1, 3, 5, 10, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18, 21 to 28 inclusive, and 30).

Big Jump (track 14) was, in fact, the uncharted flip of Sandy Nelson's first hit single, Teen Beat (from which this series takes its title) in the fall of 1959, and is not that easily found on other quality CDs. A real hard-to-find is Cerveza by Boots Brown & The Blockbusters, a # 23 Billboard Pop Hot 100 in late summer 1958.

The rest are easily obtainable, but to this collector it still rates 5 stars for offering up original renditions, and by providing detailed liner notes which reveal some interesting facts about both the familiar and not-so-familiar artists. And, as always with an Ace product, the sound is excellent.

If you love 50s and 60s music, as I do, you will really enjoy this collection of some 30 rock instrumentals.
