Great collection, containing the A-sides and B-sides of half a dozen 1964-1965 singles they did for Red Bird, rounded off with less essential odds and ends (including an alternate version of “People Say” and an a cappella alternate version of “Iko Iko”). The Dixie Cups are usually remembered only for “Chapel of Love” and perhaps “Iko Iko,” but as this disc demonstrates, there were a good number of solid girl group sides on their other Red Bird recordings. Many of them were written by the estimable Brill Building hitmaking team of Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich, and some are quite good despite almost total obscurity (such as “Little Bell” and “Another Boy Like Mine”); a few other tracks have a strong New Orleans R&B influence. It’s one of the better single-artist girl group anthologies, and makes one regret that such a likable, melodic act was unable to record longer for Red Bird, where the group teamed with such a suitable production and songwriting supporting cast.
