Description by OLDIES.com:
This budget CD features two popular R&B/Doo Wop groups, The Silhouettes and The 5 Crowns. Each group showcases five of their best recordings.
During the early R&B and doo wop era artists 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, which combines two complementary acts -- five songs apiece. This one combines the vocal groups the Silhouettes and the Five Crowns, and the pairing works pretty well, although the whole disc is over in20 minutes. You're going to hear a song or two or three 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
