This release from the Cameo-Parkway catalogue generously collects the output of Dee Dee Sharp, the artist behind "Mashed Potato Time," one of the biggest dance hits of the early 1960s. In the mold of the girl-group pop of the era, Sharp churned out a remarkable number of infectious tunes, which she delivered in a bright, soulful voice. Twenty-four of those are collected here, including her mid-'60s work, the best of which ride sinuous, funky grooves. Other tracks boast early production work by Gamble and Huff --the duo who went on to help sculpt the legendary Philly Soul sound--and, not surprisingly, the strings and lush back-up vocals play like proto-TSOP.
