Description by OLDIES.com:
A truly arresting set of singing - it's all performed by five active or retired members of the Washington D.C. police force. One of the brightest Acappella acts to appear in years, the group spends much of their free time performing for schoolchildren and instructing them on the complexities and problems of inner city life. These sixteen selections all demonstrate the group's soulfully-sweet style.

Liner Note Author: Dennis Pettet.
Richard Collins, Ron Jones, Jim Bethel, Jerry Greene, Deane Larkins, Dennis Pettet, and Reamer Shedrick, best known as D.C.'s Finest yet also known as the Doo Wop Cops, cut some of the finest a cappella R&B/soul ever waxed. The excellent sound quality and sparkling harmonies make this a listening delight. Run -- don't walk! -- to your favorite CD emporium for this, or obtain it via cyberspace -- it's worth every penny. Every cut stands out, but particular favorites include "Can I" (by the Manhattans and not the Eddie Kendricks song), "Sh-Boom," "Oh What a Night," "Island of Love," and a hysterical but great rendition of "Little Darlin'." ~ Andrew Hamilton
