Description by OLDIES.com:
This budget CD features two popular Doo Wop groups, The Marcels and The Avons. Each group showcases five of their best recordings. Includes the hit songs "Blue Moon" by The Marcels and "Baby" by The Avons.
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 Marcels, the Avons), 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.
