Liner Note Author: Mark Marymont.
During 1959 and 1960, the Arizona-based pop/rock duo had a handful of hits, highlighted by "It Was I" and "Cherry Pie," both of which peaked at number 11. Those two songs were undoubtedly the best they ever cut, but fans of their sound -- or at least pre-British Invasion pop/rock -- will find a couple of enjoyable cuts on Collectables' compilation, It Was I: The Very Best of Skip & Flip. There aren't many great songs here, but it's a neat period piece that will be of interest to either hardcore '60s pop collectors or fans of Skip Battin and Flip Paxton. After all, this wasn't the end of their careers -- Skip later played with the Byrds, the Flying Burrito Brothers, and the New Riders of the Purple Sage, while Flip was the mastermind behind "Alley Oop" and "Monster Mash." ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
