Description by OLDIES.com:

The Four Preps were a wholesome, clean-cut group who had 13 chart hits between 1956 and 1964. A Capitol Records scout discovered them while they were performing at a Hollywood High talent show. Among their biggest hits included in this 20-track collection are "26 Miles (Santa Catalina)", "Big Man", and "Down By The Station (Early In The Morning)". One of the Preps, Glen Larson, later became the well-known TV producer of "McCloud", "Quincy", "Battlestar Gallactica", "Magnum P.I.", "The Fall Guy" and others.
