Description by OLDIES.com:
This budget CD features two popular Doo Wop groups, The Crests and The Rivieras. Each group showcases five of their best recordings.
During the early R&B and doo wop era groups often toured in packages, taking the stage for a quick set of four or five songs, 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, as combines two R&B vocal artists -- five songs apiece. This one combines the Crests with the Rivieras, to the obvious benefit of neither, and the whole disc is over in 20 minutes. You're going to hear a song or two you like, though, and the series is budget-priced, so it's a trade-off. Call it the briefest of introductions to each artist -- just like those old package concert tours. ~ Steve Leggett
