AllMusic Review by

Collectors Gold Series is a single disc containing ten tracks by the Crests and eight by the Flamingos, originally released on the Selma and Parrot labels. While all of these cuts are enjoyable, the big hits these vocal groups are known for, especially "Sixteen Candles" and "I Only Have Eyes for You," aren't included in this package. The doo wop collector will be pleased with the choice of material, but the casual listener wanting the hits should search the bins for Best of the Crests Featuring Johnny Maestro and Best of the Flamingos both available on Rhino.
