Description by OLDIES.com:
This group's biggest hit is a song with real staying power. Singer/pianist Maurice Williams formed the Zodiacs in 1960 and soon they were on their way to #1 with "Stay", one of the classic Pop and R&B songs. Always popular, the song enjoyed a second round of success in 1987 when it was prominently featured in the movie "Dirty Dancing". It's the lead-off track on this wonderful hits collection.

Liner Note Author: Charlie Horner.
A "best-of" or "greatest-hits" compilation of Maurice Williams & the Zodiacs certainly is a stretch, since they only had a single hit, the number one chart-topper "Stay," known for the great falsetto lead vocals of Shane Gaston. Of the remaining 11 tracks on this short CD, only "I Remember" and "Come Along" made the Top 100. There are nice versions of jazz tunes "But Not for Me" and "The Nearness of You" here, and the collection also includes "Always," the parallel song to "Stay." You can find far more comprehensive overviews -- including interpretations of some Motown hits -- of this one-hit doo wop sensation band that flamed out as quickly as it rose. ~ Michael G. Nastos
