Very good,but missing some of their key songs

Leroy Griffin and the Nutmegs formed the most unique ensemble of the doowopp era,with hauntingly emotional tones creating a sound that can be described as eerie, melancholy and stark.But make no mistake, this was one of the most professional groups of their time, whose acapella renditions are the stuff of legend among doowopp afficionados. This is a very good collection but the absence of such wonderful songs such as "Down in Mexico","Hello","Down to Earth" "You`re crying"and "Ting a Ling" make this far from a complete discography.However,it is a good primer CD for the doowopp novice.The biggest hits are here:"Story Untold","Whispering Sorrows","Keys to the Kingdom" and "Ship of fools".However,veteran doowopp fans of this group would be better served with a more complete array of their music, highlighting more of their immortal minor key chord progressions and well honed syncopated harmonics.
