With lead Singer Sonny Till, The Orioles were the first African-American vocal group to target a young African-American audience. You'll hear elements of Gospel, Pop as well as Doo Wop sprinkled into the smooth harmonies in their many R&B hits such as "Tell Me" and "It's Too Soon To Know" and of course "Crying In The Chapel". The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995.

This Orioles hit package is about equal to any other that's available, but pales next to the Bear Family boxed set. The now defunct Murray Hill also had a great Orioles box several years ago. Save your money and grab the Bear Family if you really want the real story on The Orioles. ~ Ron Wynn
