EDITORS’ NOTES

Rydell High’s finest bring raunch, subversiveness and tunes to spare on a 1978 album that’s worthy of its place at the high table of musical movie soundtracks. Yes, the big showstoppers (“Summer Nights”, “Greased Lightnin’”) still bubble with outrageously infectious doo-wop energy but some of the subtler standards shouldn’t be ignored. “Hopelessly Devoted To You” is a tear-streaked marvel and Frankie Avalon’s “Beauty School Dropout” remains a masterfully crooned slice of savage wit.
