AllMusic Review by

Features the cream of the '60s girl groups with the Honeycones' throwback "Want Ads" blending in perfectly. Sweet memories from the Cookies' "Don't Say Nothing Bad About My Baby," the Bobbettes' "Mr. Lee," and the Shangri-Las' "Remember Walkin' in the Sand." Motown's three top female groups -- the Marvelettes, Martha & the Vandellas, and the Supremes -- are represented with "Beachwood 4-5789," "Dancing in the Street," and "Baby Love," respectively. The Jaynettes' eerie "Sally Go Round the Roses" is more mind blowing in CD format. Eighteen in all -- and not a bad apple in the bunch.
