This installment in the spate of releases showcasing Philadelphia's Cameo Parkway label focuses on the Orlons, a three-woman, one-man quartet that blended soulful doo-wop and R&B in the manner of contemporaries like the Shirelles and the early Miracles. The Orlons offered up several playful, rhythm-driven dance songs ("The Wah-Watusi"), but they are at their best on uptempo pop like "Don't Hang Up" and dramatic ballads like "The Conservative", which let lead vocalist Rosetta Highwater shine. Remastered sound and fine liner notes make this release a treasure for fans of doo-wop and R&B from the early '60s.

One of Rock's forgotten best "Girl Groups" of all time, Philadelphia's hippest, The Orlons.
This is a MUST CD for any dancer and collector of great music.

Rating 5.0 The Orlons 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 Orlons's hits on Cameo Records. They had many hits and this set proves it. Highly recommended!
