"…[Warwick’s] thoroughness lends the book—which flies in the face of the notion that producers are musical gods—a sense of much-needed authority. Through [her] Marxist feminist lens, even thin-voiced Diana Ross seems worthy of a little more R-E-S-P-E-C-T." --Harp Magazine
"This eminently readable and groundbreaking book is a must for all girl group fans, and anyone interested in the social history of music and culture during the 1960s." --Readings, Australia
"Warwick is on solid ground with her arguments, and this book makes strong contributions to popular musicology. Her work on female identity in a popular-music context is particularly innovative. Highly Recommended." --CHOICE
