Several installments in Collectables' Jukebox Giants series have the appearance of catering toward play lists of specific oldies stations across the States. Boston's WODS and Philadelphia's WOGL each have three volumes in the series, and then another three "general" volumes aren't tied to any particular station. They are no different than the three volumes dedicated to New York City's WCBS. In other words, the second WODS volume, the second WOGL volume, the second general volume, and this disc are exactly the same, offering the same 14 songs. The second volume features the Soul Survivors' "Expressway to Your Heart," the Shangri-Las' "Remember (Walking in the Sand)," the Five Satins' "In the Still of the Night," Paul & Paula's "Hey Paula," the Vogues' "You're the One," and Jewel Akens' "The Birds and the Bees." ~ Andy Kellman
