Description by OLDIES.com:
Three legendary music entrepreneurs - George Goldner, Joe Kolsky and Morris Levy - founded Roulette Records in New York City in 1957. On this collection you'll hear great tracks from Roulette artists such as The Devotions, The Turbans, The Shells, Tiny Tim & The Hits, and Darrel & The Oxfords.
Performers include: Darrell & The Oxfords, The Cleftones, The Heartbeats, The Duponts, The Turbans, Tiny Tim & The Hits, The Five Satins, The Edsels, The Shells.
Contains 14 tracks.
Spotlite on Roulette Records, Vol. 2: Doo-Wop collects more hard-to-find tunes from Roulette's achives. Most doo wop compilation discs tend to repeat the same well-known tracks ad nauseum, but even obsessives will find selections they're not likely to have heard before. Among the 14 tracks are lost treasures by the Devotions, the Shells, the Edsels, the Duponts, and the Turbans. There is a wealth of rare doo wop material just as enjoyable as the hits, and you can sample a handful of lesser-known classics on this disc. ~ Al Campbell
