Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Fans of Birmingham, England's Merseybeat/British Invasion quintet the Fortunes who are looking for a definitive best-of will have to keep looking, but for the money, this lovingly crafted collection from the Taragon label does pretty well for itself.
