CashBox - November 19, 1960

Team’s follow-up to their big pop-r&b dual-mart’er, „A Fool In Love,“ can also come thru in winning style. Tune, „I Idolize You,“ is set to an enticing middle beat rhythm and wailed with conviction by Tina. Ike’s ork and vocal group supply the tantalizing background sounds. A slow shuffle rhythm sets the pace for Tina’s infectious reading on the lower lid. (Sue 735)
