AllMusic Review by

This is truly the best of the Dell Vikings, featuring "Come Go With Me" and "Whispering Bells," along with four more classic Dot and Fee Bee sides from 1957, harmonies aglow throughout. Then it jumps to the group's post-Mercury years, 1960-63, when they sounded something like the Drifters of the same period, including the last great song the group ever did, "An Angel Up In Heaven." The sound is excellent throughout the 16 songs, and the notes are highly informative and insightful. Owning this CD will be a priority, but one shouldn't overlook the Mercury collection to fill in the two-year hole in the song lineup.
