Product Description:

The Cadillacs include: Earl Carroll, Laverne Drake, Robert Phillips, Papa Clark, Gus Willingham, Charles Brooks, Earl Wade, Jimmy Bailey (vocals).
Compilation producer: "Little Walter" DeVenne.
Includes liner notes by John Neilson.
Digitally remastered by Bill Inglot and Ken Perry (A&M Mastering).
Although completists will have to have the multi-disc set on Collectables, for the rest of their listeners, this seldom championed but nonetheless superlative single-disc compilation will more than fill the bill. At 18 tracks, a few collectors' favorites are understandably absent ("Wishing Well," "Jaywalkin'"), but all of the major and minor hits are well aboard, clearly showcasing the groups' ability to tackle everything from beautiful ballads ("Gloria," "The Girl I Love") to jump numbers ("Speedo," "My Girl Friend") to Coaster-style novelties ("Peek-a-Boo," "Please, Mr. Johnson") and do it all with style, grace, and choreography that burned. Covering their stint with Josie Records from 1954 to 1960 in a straight chronological fashion with excellent liner notes from John Neilson, this particular compilation offers great value for the bread and should be one of your very first stops in assembling a definitive doo wop collection. The Cadillacs were one of the first and one of the very best, and here's where you go to dig their basic message before proceeding further. ~ Cub Koda
