This 1996 CD reissue was a surprise, since the 1965 film to which it was attached is has only a cult following. Much of the music (Martha & the Vandellas' "Heat Wave," Mary Wells' "You Beat Me to the Punch," the Miracles' "Mickey's Monkey") is available elsewhere, although the producers have used the original master tapes as sources for the CD, so the sound is first rate. And there are two jewels here that have not appeared elsewhere on CD: "You've Really Got a Hold on Me" by the Miracles from their 1963 live album, and "Bye Bye Baby" by Mary Wells from her live album of the same era. The recording on the Miracles live cut leaves something to be desired, but listening to Smokey play the crowd, and the rapture of the audience as the group delivers an impassioned rendition of the song (with a brief foray into Sam Cooke's "Bring It on Home to Me"), all imperfections are forgiven; and the group sounds in great form. Mary Wells' performance is one of her best on record, a simmering piece of passionate, romantic soul music that rises magnificently to full boil. So why not put both live albums on one CD? ~ Bruce Eder, All Music Guide
