AllMusic Review by

You'd be hard-pressed to find a dud track on this Shirelles best-of, which contains irresistible (and influential) early-1960s songs like "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow," "Mama Said," and "Soldier Boy." One of the first girl groups of the '60s, their songs were covered by the Beatles ("Baby, It's You") and the Mamas & The Papas ("Dedicated to the One I Love"), among many others. Their vintage sound, with its simple, yet highly effective vocal arrangements, is unmistakable, with tracks like "Tonight You're Gonna Fall in Love With Me" and "Don't Say Goodnight and Mean Goodbye" possessing an attractive, guileless innocence.
