I was really looking forward to this release, especially as it's the last in the series. But I was slightly dissappointed when I listened to it. If you are a fan of Spector's earlier Crytals and early-Ronettes-era productions you will probably love this collection. But, for anyone who prefers Spector's more sophisticated post-"Walking in the Rain" productions - there's less to excite the listener in this collection.
Jerry Ganey's two tracks are outstanding, as are those by Bonnie, George & Sonny Sands and Dan Folger. But the quality of some of the tracks doesn't match those on the other two volumes in the series - in my opinion. Even for those who don't favour early-Spector-style productions, there was no denying the quality of the songs on the previous collections, not so with this third volume.
Any number of the songs on this collection could have been dropped in favour of better Spector sound-a-likes, such as Gene McDaniels' "Hang On", Malcolm Hayes' "It's Not Easy", "Ruby&The Romantics' "Does He Really Care For Me" or any of the other four Clydie King Liberty-Records issued tracks (Bobby Sheen's "Sweet Sweet Love" is no match for any of Clydie's tracks, no matter what the liner notes tell you).
Too many disc-dubs and poor song selection mar what is a beautifully presented and well researched CD. If you have the other volumes already you may find much to your liking here, but it doesn't compare to the other volumes in my opinion.
In the end, it's a matter of personal taste.
