25 All-Time Greatest Hits

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Steve Klinge
The late '90s aren't the first time that music by and about teenage girls dominated radio. The Girl Group era, roughly 1959 to 1964, featured songs about the joys and mostly anxieties of youthful love, and New Jersey's Shirelles rank among the era's best. They not only sang artful Brill Building masterpieces like Goffin/King's "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" and Bacharach/David/Williams's "Baby It's You," but also penned some of their own hits -- including their wonderful first single, "I Met Him on a Sunday," which they wrote while in high school. This generous 26-track collection includes everything that all but the most ardent historian needs. From the jukebox favorite ...

Barnes & Noble - Steve Klinge

This generous 26-track collection includes everything that all but the most ardent historian needs. From the jukebox favorite "Dedicated To The One I Love," to Shirley Alston's vocal showcase "Mama Said," to the handclaps of "Maybe Tonight," the Shirelles' songs can elicit joy from even the most jaded listener. It's hard to imagine Britney Spears sounding this good in 40 years.
All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
An excellent 26-song single-disc collection that has all of the significant hits and several very fine low-charting 45s and B-sides. Some good tracks are missing, however, notably "Putty" which the Yardbirds covered and Goffin-King's "Make the Night a Little Longer." Rhino's Anthology double LP still has a tiny edge in song selection if you can find it, but if you're not real picky this is certainly a quality summary of their career highlights. There are also a few items that don't show up on all the best-ofs, like the 1961 B-side "The Things I Want to Hear" and the small 1964 hit "Thank You, Baby."
