Liner Note Authors: Mark Marymont; Scott Walker.
An apple and oranges compilation of Philly hits, spanning from Frankie Avalon to Harold Melvin & the Bluenotes. Most were major hits, but it includes a few tracks litle known outside the Philly/tri-state area like Anthony & the Sophomores' "Play Those Oldies Mr. DJ," the Dreamlovers' "You Gave Me Somebody to Love," and the Majors' "A Wonderful Dream." The oldies but goodies include Chubby Checker's "The Twist," the O'Jay's "I Love Music," Danny & the Juniors' "At the Hop," and many more, 21 in all. The price is more than reasonable, and the music is great. ~ Andrew Hamilton
