With one conspicuous exception, this one disc best-of is the definitive collection of this tempestuous duo's music. That exception, of course, is the cut of "River Deep, Mountain High," which isn't the epochal Phil Spector-produced single, but rather a live version. However, it's perfectly acceptable on its own terms, though purists will lament the lack of Spector's famous Wall Of Sound (what's here is more like a Small Chain Mail Fence Of Sound).
Everything else, however, is first-rate, from smolderingly raunchy early '60s singles like "It's Gonna Work Out Fine" (presented, thankfully, in the original mono), to Tina's autobiographical "Nutbush City Limits" from the early '70s. Essential stuff.
