"although many of her songs were released under the names of other artists, her voice is the real signature!WOW! What a singer! You've heard her singing back-up with everyone from Johnny Rivers, Jan and Dean, Dionne Warwick, the Rightous Brothers, and on and on and on....but to hear her sing solo is the biggest treat of all.Darlene can sing all the sounds....r&b, rock and roll, gospel, and this list goes on and on too!You've seen her as Danny Glover's wife in all the Lethal Weapon movies and you can read about her in her book "My Name Is Love : The Darlene Love Story" (available at Amazon.com)......but the biggest treat of all is to hear her sing.Sadly, this collection doesn't have the best rock and roll Christmas song of all time.... "Christmas, Baby Please Come Home"....but that's available at Amazon.com also on the CD "A Christmas Gift to You...from Phil Spector". If you are a fan of Rock and Roll or just great music...check out this or any CD by Darlene Love...You're in for a big treat!"

"i first heard darlene love in 1962 when she sang he's a rebel although the crystals received credit for the song i didn't realize that phil spector had darlene sing the song eventhough she wasn't a member of the group. i guess phil could do pretty much what he wanted back then! this alblum demonstrates not only the wonderful voice darlene possessed but the creativity of phil spector. his musical arrangements a perfect blend of guitars,saxaphones,percussion,backupsingers and the best studio drummer there was in hal blaine.i truly enjoy most of the songs on this alblum,but my favorite is zip a dee doo dah. this song is just a great off beat rendition of an old classic.once again the band and darlene simply compliment eachother.i just wish it was about 5 minutes longer! i rated this alblum 4 stars because there are some songs i just can't quite get into. i'm sure there are other people who would enjoy them and i do appreciate the effort put into them,but i'll listen to 11 out of 15 songs anytime!"
DARLENE LOVE WAS QUEEN OF "THE WALL OF SOUND"

"DARLENE LOVE HAS A VOICE THAT REALLY STANDS OUT. WHETHER YOU HEAR HER AS BACK-UP TO ELVIS PRESLEY, DICK DALE AND THE DELTONES(LISTEN TO THE MAN WITH THE BOSS GUITAR)YOU CAN TELL IT'S HER. SHE SANG IN SO MANY GROUPS BUT HER VOICE STOOD OUT!SHE DID HOWEVER MANAGE, THROUGH PHIL SPECTOR, TO RELASE SOME SINGLES UNDER HER OWN NAME.HER BIGGEST AND FIRST SOLO HIT WAS "TODAY I MET THE BOY I'M GONNA MARRY".WHAT A SOUND THAT WAS!! I WENT OUT AND BOUGHT SEVERAL COPIES BECAUSE I KNEW I'D WEAR THEM OUT. HER VOICE HOWEVER STANDS OUT BIG- TIME IN "HE'S A REBEL" SINGING LEAD WITH THE CRYSTALS. EVERYBOY LOVED TO DANCE TO THAT ONE IN THE 60'S! DARLENE HAD ORIGINALLY STARTED OUT SINGING GOSPEL AND THE STRENGTH IS HEARD IN ALL HER SONGS. I'VE BOUGHT EVERYTHING SHE EVER PUT OUT. THERE ARE STILL CUTS OUT THERE THAT HAVEN'T BEEN RELEASED WITH THE BLOSSOMS . ALL IN ALL THIS C.D. IS EXCELLENT AND NOT TO BE MISSED!!!DARLEN LOVE WAS QUEEN OF PHIL SPECTOR'S "WALL OF SOUND"."
