Best Of...1958-1980: Come and Get Me

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bart Bealmear
Best Of...1958-1980: Come and Get Me is a generous collection of Jackie DeShannon's biggest hits, important album cuts, and obscure non-LP singles. The keys to DeShannon's talent lie not only in her own songwriting and ability to handle non-originals as if they were her own compositions, but her versatility as a performer.

She could also pull off sentimental ballads and was believable when in the singer/songwriter mode. There are many peaks in this anthology, including the proto folk-rock of "Needles and Pins" written by Sonny Bono and Jack Nitzsche and "When You Walk in the Room" a sole composition from 1964 that sounds like a Byrds tune as carried out by the Ronettes, as well as the soulful rocker "It's Love Baby" which features a hot guitar solo and the initial recorded version of "Bette Davis Eyes" co-written by DeShannon and later a number one hit for Kim Carnes. A 4,000-word essay by longtime fan Glenn A. Baker rounds out the package.
