Description by OLDIES.com:
This budget CD features the popular Doo Wop group, The Chantels and extraordinary singer Frankie Lymon. Each showcases five of their best recordings. Includes the hit songs "Maybe" by The Chantels and "Goody Goody" by Frankie Lymon.
During the doo wop era groups often toured in packages, taking the stage for a quick set of four or five songs, and then clearing out of the way for the next act to do their four or five songs. And in some ways that's what this "meets" series from Collectables feels like, combining songs from two doo wop artists at five songs apiece. While the disc largely fails to highlight the strengths of either band (The Chantels, Frankie Lymon), you're bound to hear a song or two you like. And considering that the series is budget priced, it's a trade-off. Call it the briefest of introductions to each artist, just like those old package concert tours.
