There isn't a lot of "hit" material on this Collectables compilation, but nonetheless a worthwhile addition to any doo wop collection. Included in the 16 tracks are "My Angel Lover" by Cleftones, "One Little Teardrop" by Castelles, "You Promised Me Love" by The Channels, and "Heaven's for Real" by The Storytellers. Trying to track down original pressings of these records is virtually impossible and expensive beyond reason, making this collection definitely recommended. ~ Al Campbell
