This album is, as the title tells, collaboration between saxophonist King Curtis and The Shirelles. The album does not reach the high levels of the previous - far from it. Unless you are a fan of pop-jazz, nothing much to go for here. Most of King Curtis' s contributions are instrumentals - decent but not very interesting. The Shirelles' own numbers are not much better - the songwriting is simply not exciting enough. The best songs "I Still Want You" and "Welcome Home Baby" can at best be called mediocre - a disappointing album.
