All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
Although the Silhouettes only had one national hit, the enduring "Get a Job," written by group member Rick Lewis while he was stationed in West Germany during a hitch in the U.S. Army, the group had a good deal more to offer than most one-shot wonders, as this generous 30-track set makes clear.
