AllMusic Review by

Richard Collins, Ron Jones, Jim Bethel, Jerry Greene, Deane Larkins, Dennis Pettet, and Reamer Shedrick, best known as D.C.'s Finest yet also known as the Doo Wop Cops, cut some of the finest a cappella R&B/soul ever waxed. The excellent sound quality and sparkling harmonies make this a listening delight. Run -- don't walk! -- to your favorite CD emporium for this, or obtain it via cyberspace -- it's worth every penny. Every cut stands out, but particular favorites include "Can I" (by the Manhattans and not the Eddie Kendricks song), "Sh-Boom," "Oh What a Night," "Island of Love," and a hysterical but great rendition of "Little Darlin'."
