Product Description:

Liner Note Author: Marv Goldberg.
This semi-decent collection from the Collectables label of early-50s vocal quintet the Flamingos features 12 tracks from the group's Chance, Checker, and Decca recording sessions. While catchy doo wop cuts like "It's Too Soon to Know," "Sinner (El Pecador)," the "Moonlight in Vermont," "Ol' Man River," and "Flame of Love" are good, fans looking for Flamingos' classics like "Golden Teardrops" or "I'll Be Home" will come away disappointed and should check out Rhino's excellent Best of the Flamingos or Collectables aptly titled 42-track For Collectors Only box. ~ James Christopher Monger

Rating 5.0 The Fabulous Flamingos Music Lover: from FORDS, NJ US -- October, 14, 2013

This is not a collection of the Flamingos Chance, Checker, and Decca recordings. There are no recordings from those labels on this CD, and original members Sollie McCelroy and Johnny Carter are not in the group. It is the End LP The Sound of the Flamingos from 1961/62, a continuation of their unique treatment of standards and original compositions written in the style of standards, like their previous 3 LPs on End, Requestfully Yours, Flamingo Favorites, and Flamingo Serenade. The difference from the previous 3 End LPs is Tommy Hunt and Nate Nelson are not on this recording, and Danny Boy is a saxophone instrumental without vocals. Anyone who likes the previous 3 LPs will also like this one.
