Among the many underrated doo-wop-tinged gems here are the headstrong "No, No, No" and the jubilant "You Can't Sit Down." With its excellent liner notes and fine selections, CAMEO PARKWAY gives this charming R&B-inspired group its due.

Rating 5.0 "You can't sit down with this one" Music Lover: from WESTLAKE, OH US -- March, 8, 2006

Len Barry at his best with the original Parkway recordings of the Dovells, the songs America danced too, and a must for dancers and oldies lovers of every age.

Rating 5.0 The Dovells Music Lover: from northern NJ US -- October, 22, 2005

It's finally available. A greatest hits package, digitally remastered by the owners of the Cameo/ Parkway catalog. It's a great collection of the Dovell's hits on Parkway Records. They had many hits and this set proves it. Highly recommended!
