AllMusic Review by

Bellevue's Love Songs series, like other releases from the label, features only a handful of original recordings per volume. Poorly recorded live versions and studio re-recordings are far more common. The label specifies which selections are live, but it does not bother to note which ones are inferior studio remakes. That alone is a case for ignoring the whole series. Among the many reasons to avoid this volume: substandard versions of Bobby Vee's "Take Good Care of My Baby," Dionne Warwick's "Walk on By," Lesley Gore's "It's My Party," and the Delfonics' "Didn't I Blow Your Mind This Time."
