Review

{$Bobby Vee} is rarely counted among the premier vocalists of the {\Brill Building} era, but in truth he made some very memorable if hopelessly slight {\pop} records, marshaling the enormous talents of the composing team of {$Gerry Goffin} and {$Carole King} to ring up a series of hits in the months prior to the explosion of Beatlemania. Of the 22 tracks compiled on {^Take Good Care of My Baby}, the title cut remains {$Vee}'s high watermark. His sole chart-topper, this {$Goffin}/{$King} effort remains a perfect distillation of period-puppy-love innocence with its absurdly milquetoasty lyric and sappy melody. {&"Punish Her"} and the {$Gene Pitney}-inspired {&"The Night Has a Thousand Eyes"} are almost as good, while the minor 1963 hit {&"Be True to Yourself"} documents an early collaboration by the songwriting team of {$Hal David} and {$Burt Bacharach}. {$Vee}'s commercial fortunes fell precipitously after 1963, although he returned to the Top Five with 1967's aptly titled {&"Come Back When You Grow Up."} The set concludes with an ill-considered medley of {$the Temptations}' {&"My Girl"} and {$Goffin}/{$King}'s {&"Hey Girl."} Whatever {$Vee}'s talents, singing {\R&B} was clearly not among them. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
