AllMusic Review by

This collection features 12 fine sides from R&B vocal group pioneers Lee Andrews & the Hearts, the Cadillacs, the Moonglows, the Drifters, and the Flamingos. Females get a say via the Chantels' "Maybe" and the teeny bop soul of "I Shot Mr. Lee," by the Bobbettes. Blue-eyed soul warbler Johnny Maestro leads the Crests on the unforgettable "Sixteen Candles." Other notables: the Temptations (not the Motown group, but some other guys who waxed "Barbara") and the Coasters' "Speedo," a novelty about one of its members, works on record but is a riot live.
