Originally released on the Scepter label in 1962, Baby It's You marks the pinnacle of The Shirelles pop R&B sound. Formed in New Jersey in 1957 by four high school friends, The Shirelles found early success in 1958 with the classic "I Met Him on a Sunday" but it wasn't until the Bacharach-penned "Baby It's You" and the Billboard chart-topping "Soldier Boy" that they really hit their stride. Those two stone classics are featured here along with 10 more catchy numbers from such songwriting legends as Goffin & King and Shirelles' producer Luther Dixon. This classic title is now reissued on LP.
"...a pretty solid effort for its day, featuring state-of-the-art orchestral early-'60s New York girl group production..." -Richie Unterberger, allmusic.com
