AllMusic Review by

The first greatest hit album from Red Bird Records features hits by the Dixie Cups, the Shangri-las, the Ad Libs, the Jelly Beans, the Trade Winds, and Alvin Robinson. "Remember (Walking In The Sand)" by the Shangri-las is three minutes of Brill Building brilliance, a sweet, innocence teenage remembrance. The Jelly Beans "I Wanna Love Him So Bad" with the flopping bass, and the Ad Libs kicking "The Boy From New York City," illustrate a homogenized side of 60's music. Listening to these brings back memories of My Three Sons, Donna Reed, American Bandstand, junior high school canteens, 16 Magazine, and hula hoops.
