The prototype for Gamble & Huff's classic Philly soul groups of the early '70s, the Intruders didn't spend much time in the pop Top 40 -- especially compared to heavy-hitters like the O'Jays or Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes -- but their smooth performances and Gamble & Huff's strong arrangements usually triumphed over the occasional novelty-ridden nature of their songs. The title track, \"Cowboys to Girls,\" isn't a novelty by any means; it's one of the paragons of soul music, a delicious blend of subtle strings, punchy brass, and crystal harmonies from the group, with Samuel \"Little Sonny\" Brown's strong lead keeping it all together. The follow-up (and their only other Top 40 hit), \"(Love Is Like A) Baseball Game,\" was a novelty, but a good one, as were the RgB hits \"A Love That's Real\" and \"(Win, Place or Show) She's a Winner.\" At 20 tracks, Cowboys to Girls: The Best of the Intruders has room for all the Intruders' hits, including a few engaging latter-day entries like 1969's \"Sad Girl\" and 1970's \"When We Get Married\" (the latter during Bobby Starr's brief tenure at the head of the group).
