AllMusic Review by Heather Phares

Delta's Best of the Girl Groups collects ten songs from classic girl groups like the Supremes, the Crystals and the Marvelettes. However, nearly all of these tracks appear as inferior re-recordings or live versions (the Crystals' "He's a Rebel" sounds especially new and slick). Only the Shangri-Las' "Leader of the Pack" and "I Can Never Go Home Anymore" are the original versions, and they sound just as thrillingly melodramatic as ever. However this collection is so short and has such a poor ratio of original songs to re-recorded versions that it can't be recommended.
