Product Description:

On the heels of Real Gone's well-received Red Bird Girls: Very First Time in True Stereo 1964-1966 comes another incredible find for doo wop and girl group fans: the first-ever legitimate album devoted to the classic Blue Cat recordings by the legendary vocal group The Ad-Libs, featuring 23 tracks taken by producers Ron Furmanek and Ash Wells straight from the original master session tapes (again, another first) including five unreleased songs and nine unreleased alternate versions! And among those unreleased alternate versions are a full three newly-discovered versions of their big hit The Boy from New York City, highlighted by an a cappella demo version that must be heard! Most tracks make their true stereo debut, while the 12-page booklet boasts great liner notes by James Moniz offering insights from original Ad-Lib Norman Donegan, plus a foreword from Manhattan Transfer member Tim Hauser (not only did Manhattan Transfer have a hit with The Boy from New York City, but the Ad-Libs' jazzy mixture of male and female voices was a big influence on them). The Ad-Libs' complete (and then some) Blue Cat Recordings!
