The sound of Don & Juan was as seductive as a Don Juan. Comprised of Roland Trone and Claude Johnson (formerly of The Genies), this vocal duo were favorites in the early '60s. Their biggest hit, "What's Your Name", went all the way to the Top 10 in 1962. This collection features all the great tunes for which this duo is still remembered.

Liner Note Author: Mark Marymont.
A nice 14-track collection of this obscure one-hit wonder duo from the early '60s. Apartment painters Claude Johnson and Roland Trone -- Don and Juan respectively -- contributed one hit to the history of rock & roll, "What's Your Name," a track that skirts the fine line between old '50s doo wop and the emerging proto-soul style waiting in the wings. The duo never found another hit, but tracks like "Chicken Necks," "Two Fools Are We," and "Magic Wand" are equally fine examples of their sound. A minor collection by these one-hit wonders, but great fun anyway. ~ Cub Koda
