AllMusic Review by

The Flamingos didn't have many hits while they were at Checker, but those two singles -- "I'll Be Home" and "A Kiss From Your Lips" -- were terrific, sketching out the lush sound they would later blossom on "I Only Have Eyes for You." Complete Chess Masters Plus contains all 18 songs, including two previously unreleased tracks, the group recorded for Checker and Chess. Although it's not a definitive career overview, it's an essential item for collectors of doo wop and vocal R&B, since it's lovingly packaged and contains numerous gems, including "The Vow" and "Dream of a Lifetime."
