AllMusic Review by

Woefully underrated girl group Reparata & the Delrons' body of work has spanned numerous record labels, making it difficult to compile a true "best of." 2001's "unauthorized anthology" Magical Musical History Tour led to the authorized Best of Reparata and the Delrons from Ace, which makes this Collectables compilation, Whenever a Teenager Cries, sort of an underachieving kid brother. That's not to say that there isn't a wealth of sticky sweet, slightly psychedelic goodness to be found here (there is), but without a key track like "Panic," and most importantly, "Captain of Your Ship," it's hard to recommend it over the superior Ace collection.
