The Jesters were no joke - with their stirring harmonies and soaring falsettos, The Jesters were a classic New York street corner group. Practitioners of the Doo Wop genre, the group scored in the late '50s with "So Strange" and "The Plea", which were their biggest successes on the Pop charts. This hits collection is filled with their most enduring harmonies.

A fun 1950s New York City vocal group, the Jesters sang vibrant five-part street harmonies, making them a favorite of serious doo wop fans. Led by the alternating lead vocals of Lennie McKay and Adam Jackson, the group tracked several timeless singles, including 1957's "Please Let Me Love You," 1958's "Now That You're Gone" and "The Plea" (originally done by the Chantels), and 1960's wonderful "Sally Green" and "The Wind" (a remake of the Diablos' 1954 hit), all of which are collected in this 14-song set. Woefully underappreciated outside of the doo wop community, the Jesters have also been underserved in the digital era, and this is the only disc of their work currently available, which means it will have to do. Luckily, all you really need is here. ~ Steve Leggett
