AllMusic Review by

This two-CD compilation from Time-Life gathers the best girl-groups of the past 30 years, focussing on the spunkier side of things. Here we have Motown's Marvelettes telling a would-be competitor "Don't Mess with Bill," 1970s soul sisters the Honey Cone checking out the "Want Ads," and En Vogue bragging about "Giving Him Something He Can Feel." This delightful collection is big on singalong choruses, and some of the best female vocals on record.
