Allmusic.com gave Bobby Vee’s Golden Greats a 3 1/2 star review:
Bobby Vee’s Golden Greats was the first compilation of the singer’s hits, assembled and released in late 1962, in time for Christmas of that year, at a point when he fairly ruled the charts and his records were thoroughly representative of what was happening in music. The biggest hits — not in any particular order — were reserved for the first side, the biggest hit on side two being “Rubber Ball,” which peaked at number six. But the most interesting cut here is easily “Suzie Baby,” originally recorded by Vee for the tiny Soma label and later licensed by Liberty Records. … As a hits compilation, this is an above-average release, and it is actually unexpectedly thorough, mostly thanks to the obscurities included; but this is also too restricted a way in which to discover an underrated talent such as Vee.
