Time Life music collections are always solid, well-done affairs, and this one, which features classic early era rock & roll hits from 1962, is no exception. Every track is a hands down winner, and it's always wonderful to hear such timeless gems as Little Eva
's "The Loco-Motion," the Drifters
' elegant "Up on the Roof," Del Shannon
's "Little Town Flirt," and Booker T. & the MG's
sturdy and infectious "Green Onions." 1962 was also the year of the twist dance craze, and two immortal selections here, the Isley Brothers
' "Twist and Shout" and Sam Cooke
's "Twistin' the Night Away," reflect that.
