In the mid-1970s, when '50s nostalgia was all the rage, rock-&-roll revivalists Sha Na Na (who had formed in the '60s, and performed at Woodstock) reached their peak, even landing their own TV show, but their reputation was made on records like the ones compiled on this twofer. Containing Sha Na Na's first two albums, this release is full of '50s doo wop and rock-&-roll classics given reverential but energetic updates, making them seem fresh and vital for the new generation and keeping that crucial sense of fun intact.
