The Red Bird Story [Charly 4-CD]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Red Bird was a great label in the mid-'60s, releasing some excellent soul/pop hybrids and some of the greatest girl group records of all time, especially those by The Shangri-Las and the Dixie Cups. This 4-CD, 96-track compilation is a frustratingly mixed attempt to enshrine its legacy. There are lots of great sides here: all the Shangri-Las and Dixie Cups hits, many of their rarities, one-shots by The Ad Libs, Jelly Beans, Butterflies, and Tradewinds, and cool rarities by Bessie Banks, Dee Dee Warwick, Evie Sands, Ellie Greenwich, the Soul Brothers, Cathy Saint, Linda Jones, and Andy Kim. But the programming is unnervingly jumpy and haphazard, the liner notes ...

Red Bird was a great label in the mid-'60s, releasing some excellent soul/pop hybrids and some of the greatest girl group records of all time, especially those by The Shangri-Las and the Dixie Cups. This 4-CD, 96-track compilation is a frustratingly mixed attempt to enshrine its legacy.

But the programming is unnervingly jumpy and haphazard, the liner notes surprisingly fuzzy no information whatsoever is given about many of the lesser-known artists, and, in the absence of master tapes, some of the cuts were obviously taken from records. And for all its length, it's not even a complete collection of Red Bird's output; some songs that were excluded had even surfaced on previous Charly vinyl anthologies. That said, there's still a lot of great music here, and the flaws in execution may not matter to some fans.
