CD Reviews

Excellent introduction to Lesley Gore's 60s material.
James A. Allio | Oakland, CA USA | 02/17/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

""Best of Lesley Gore" is an excellent introduction to the mid-sixties teen queen, as it contains several of her rhythmic, Quincy Jones hits that fall squarely into the girl group sound ("It's My Party," "Look of Love," "That's the Way Boys Are"),alongside some less well known but sought after tracks showing her range and versatility (the Bacharach-influenced "All of My Life," Brit-pop "Off and Running" and psychedelic riff, "Magic Colors"). A real bonus is Lesley's proto-feminist anthem, "You Don't Own Me," still unmatched for its impassioned vocals full of rage and its stark arrangements. If you want to check Lesley Gore out, this is a good place to start...You'll move on to the hard stuff soon after!"
An interesting cd with/ An important sixtie's symbol
JUANCARLOSFERNAN@HOTMAIL.COM | Viņa del Mar, Chile | 04/12/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"IN SPITE OF SOME COMMENTS ABOUT HER AND THIS C.D, I THINK IT WAS A GOOD APPROACHMENT TO KNOW SOMETHING MORE ABOUT ONE OF THE MOST CHARACTERISTIC SYMBOLS OF THE SIXTIES DECADE. THE BEST OF THIS EDITION IS THE FIDELITY OF SOUND AND THE POSSIBILITY TO HAVE "IT`S MY PARTY"- "YOU DON'T OWN ME" AND MANY OTHERS."
Doesn't Live Up to The Title
James A. Allio | 06/21/1998
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Leaves out a lot of her hits, but does include the original versions of "It's My Party," "You Don't Own Me," "That's the Way Boys Are," "Look of Love," "California Nights," and "Maybe I Know." The rest is awful filler material that should never have made it onto a CD with this title."
