CD Reviews

This is perfect music.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"OK, I'll show my age. I recently bought this CD, but the music recalls my earliest years, some of the first music I can remember hearing around my house in Philly. As collections go, the mega-hits are the reason that you first buy the set. "Dedicated to the One I Love" kicks off the best of the Shirelles' repertoire. They are timeless classics. I dare you to pick a favorite. I can only narrow it down to "Will You Still Love Me", "Mama Said", and "Soldier Boy". It was a real bonus to listen to the lesser known selections because they are a part of a style of music that is long gone. It can be discovered by a new generation through these collections and other reissues, but its with a sad fondness that the generations that lived these times can revisit them. These kind of songs were playing at their proms, and on their first dates. If you are in your twenties, this set would be a great music gift for your parents. Another bonus is the accompanying booklet that details the group's rise and short stay at the top of their field. It includes many parallel industry events, especially the factors that surrounded the Shirelles' reign coming to an end. It's a comprehensive look at a group whose songs are so much a part of music history, that no matter what the age, everyone can recall singing along to them."
