AllMusic Review by

Here are ten remakes by four surviving one-time members of the original group with a respectful guitar, drums, bass, piano, and sax background. The harmonies are good, the music fine with shreds of their former grace. Retreads include "Come Go with Me," "Cool Shake," "Down in Bermuda," "Whispering Bells," and "Come Along with Me." There's a fabulously rich arrangement of the ballad "True Love," the one highlight of the set. It sadly lacks notes and session details. There's nice, full, clean, crisp sound engineered by Gene Echelberger.
