AllMusic Review by

This 20-track set collects a number of hits from the so-called girl group era of the 1960s, including classics by the Shangri-Las (“Leader of the Pack” and “Remember [Walking in the Sand]”), the Crystals (“Da Doo Ron Ron,” “He’s a Rebel,” and “One Fine Day”), and the Chiffons (“He’s So Fine”), although there are also some more Motown-oriented tracks here, too, like Gladys Knight & the Pips' “Every Beat of My Heart,” as well as a couple of left-field tracks (“Those Were the Days” by Mary Hopkin and “Walk on By” by Dionne Warwick) that don’t fit as neatly into the apparent thematic concept -- it doesn’t break the fun of hearing these great songs again no matter what label is applied to them.
