Description by OLDIES.com:

A Cincinnati vocal group, Otis Williams & the Charms landed a #1 R&B hit for almost ten weeks in 1954 (also hitting #15 on the Pop charts) with "Hearts of Stone," a song which has become a "standard" of the Doo Wop genre. Otis Williams continued to record for King until 1963, after which he recorded country tunes as Otis Williams & The Midnight Cowboys until the late 1960s.

Product Description:

Liner Note Author: Victor Pearlin.
Otis Williams & the Charms were purveyors of fine, primitive R&B-influenced doo wop in the '50s. Their biggest pop hit was 1954's "Hearts of Stone" (later given the dubious honor of being covered by Pat Boone), but they also struck gold with "Ivory Tower" and the super cool and not very P.C. "Ling, Ting Tong." The 25 tracks on Collectables' The Very Best of Otis Williams and His Charms are all solid gold doo wop, some of the best being the rollicking Leiber & Stoller-penned "Bazoom (I Need Your Lovin')," a bopping cover of Patsy Cline's "Walkin' After Midnight," the peppy "Dynamite Darling," and the achingly sweet "Could This Be Magic." Anyone who digs the Coasters should be sure to investigate these guys, because they share the same lighthearted charm (if not the same overall quality). This is also the best collection on the market for the group, gathering up all their best songs in a well-sequenced presentation with fine sound quality to boot. ~ Tim Sendra
