Description by

Best known for their 1965 hit, "The Boy from New York City", the vocal group The Ad Libs are joined on this disc by other artists who recorded for the Red Bird and Blue Cat labels.


Product Description:

Liner Note Author: Mark Marymont.
The Ad Libs & Friends feature recordings by the Ad Libs, who scored with "The Boy From New York City"; the Dixie Cups of "Iko Iko" and "Chapel of Love" fame; and three less successful Red Bird and World Artist recording groups: the Poets, the Butterflies, and the Charmettes. The Poets -- Don McPherson, Luther Simmons, and Tony Silvester -- who became the Insiders then Main Ingrediant represent with "Merry Christmas Baby"; the Butterflies do Ellie Greenwich and Jeff Barry's "Gee Baby Gee"; while the interesting Charmettes wail about their "Sugar Boy." These 18 sweet mid-'60s Brill Building sounds revisit a time when music was sugar, spice, and everything nice. ~ Andrew Hamilton

Rating 5.0 Ad-LiBs & Friends Music Lover: from Sarasota, FL US -- June, 19, 2008

I have purchased from Oldies since the 1980's (45's to CD's). I find that their service and inventory is amazing.

As the Ad-Libs weren't around for a long time they made people get up and dance.

What's better than that!
