While other Shirelles packages feature more tracks, this 16-tracker gets all the absolute essentials in one place, making it the number one choice to add to the shopping list. A big point in its favor is the inclusion of the group's first hit, "I Met Him on a Sunday," and every chart single the group ever had. The Shirelles were major movers and shakers in girl group circles, and these 16 tracks serve their memory well.

Shirley Owens was one of the greatest singers for her simplicity in delivery, vulnerability just under the surface, and filled with an emotional life that gave these pop confections an extra spice that made them really burst. Of course, having material from the likes of Goffin/King and Bacharach/David to perform would give just about anyone a leg up, but listen to how much sensuality she packs into “Welcome Home Baby,” yearni” read more

"This New Jersey quartet went from doo-wop dollies to pop sophisticates in their short but exceedingly sweet early-’60s prime. Of course, having songwriters such as Goffin/King and Bacharach/David didn’t hurt, either. Standout track: “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”"
