If you're a sixties soul or girl group fan you'll probably have a lot of these tracks already. But in my opinion this set is worth getting for the one track My Dream by The Sharmettes. I'd never heard this before and it's an absolute classic doowop song. (Up there with Little Darlin' by The Diamonds etc). If you like doowop, soul and sixties pop you should buy this.
