Golden Classics

by: The Sheppards

Until WestSide's Bunky's Picks was released, Collectables' Golden Classics was the best CD collection of the trailblazing recordings of the Sheppards. Even with that 25-track collection on the market, this is still a very good set, containing 18 of the group's best -- all of their essentials, really -- in a domestically available set. The packaging and sound aren't quite as good as those on the WestSide release, but the music remains tremendous and exciting, finding the Sheppards pushing past doo wop and into soul with their passionate, beautiful R&B. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
