Description by OLDIES.com:

Originally formed as The Challengers, The Olympics were regulars on the Pop and R&B charts from the late '50s to the mid-'60s. This disc captures them at their '59-'60 peak and includes such hits as "Shimmy Like Kate" and "(Baby) Hully Gully". This disc also includes a release from The Marathons (aka The Vibrations) and their big hit, "Peanut Butter" was the same tune as The Olympics' "(Baby) Hully Gully" with different words.
