Fourteen tracks to take you back to the late '50s. Included are "Oh Gee Oh Gosh" by The Kodaks, "I Love My Baby" by The Tokens, "Hey You" by The Imaginations, "All Mine" by The Five Satins, plus many more still great sounding favorites.
With a title like Memories of Times Square Record Shop, you wouldn't think that this Collectables series would have such broad appeal, but it compiles dozens of rare doo wop singles -- most of which are excellent -- that have changed hands for substantial sums. Obsessive doo wop fans won't be 100 percent satisfied, of course (these are, after all, budget releases), but the beauty of these discs is that the music can be enjoyed by the informed and merely interested alike. The fifth volume features the Five Satins' "All Mine," the Monarchs' "Always Be Faithful," Jackie & the Starlites' "Valerie," the Cineramas' "Life Can Be Beautiful," and the Imaginations' "Hey You." ~ Andy Kellman
