AllMusic Review by

A four-disc, 85-track collection of doo wop love songs, this box set has more references to hearts, stars, and angels than one can even begin to imagine, and if you're not in love when you start listening to it, you'll certainly wish you were by the end. Included are classic songs from the genre like Frankie Lyman's "Why Do Fools Fall in Love" (indeed, why do they?), the Marcels' "Blue Moon," the Five Satins' immortal "In the Still of the Nite," and the Mystics' gorgeous, soothing "Hushabye," along with some left-field tracks like the Four Seasons' "Sherry" and the Tokens' "The Lion Sleeps Tonight." A whole lot of fun, whether you're in love or you're not.
