As with all compilation albums, there are some super driving, rocking star tracks and some dross, but with 170 of them, you can't be robbed at the low, low price. This has introduced me to some new (old) artists, but also provided a reminder that even successful artists like the Beach Boys have produced some duffers. This is a well mastered album with good and consistent volume, giving clear reproduction. So, lets all Dance With The Surfin' Band - (Hal Blaine & The Young Cougars). Excellent.
