Billboard Review

April 07, 1962

A fine group of soulful, gospel-styled offerings by the pair, with Tina shouting out the basic message. Many of these have been out as hot-selling singles - „Jealous,“ „I ldolize You,“ „A Fool in Love,“ „The Way You Love Me,“ etc. Strong wax and the fans of the couple will dig it.
