This is a great compilation of Little Anthony and the Imerials greatest hits. The songs are very soulful and have a very dramatic sound which adds to it's appeal. Listening to these songs one can't sometimes help thinking back to Phil Spector's groups that helped define his "wall of sound". The music arrangements on many of these songs are melodically rich and full of emotion and soul. The hits are all here the most memorable being, "Goin' out of My Head", "Hurt So Bad" and "Shimmy, Shimmy, Ko-Ko-Bop". This collection just proves how soulful Little Anthony and Imperials were. I imagine these songs spoke to and for a generation of teenagers and young adults falling in and out of love and the joy and pain that comes with all of that. Overall this is a great purchase from a group that is wrongfully overlooked when it comes to giving credit for music that helped shaped an era.Was this review helpful?
