Old Town Records was home to some of the most promising young vocal and Doo Wop groups of the mid-'50s. This set features stand-out tunes such as "Life Is But a Dream" by the Harptones, "Stranger in Paradise" by the Solitaires, and "Give Me Your Love" by the Four Pharoahs.
The fifth volume in Collectable's overview of Hy Weiss' Old Town label shows that the label was always a haven for top-notch vocal group material. Kicking off with "Life Is But a Dream" by the Harptones, the set brings together classics from the Clefftones, the Four Pharaohs, the Capris, the Solitaires, the Fiestas, the Co-Eds, and the Fi-Tones. Tracks from the Bonnevilles, the Serenaders, the Escorts, the Vocaleers, the Supremes, the Royaltones, the Valentines, the Hummers, the Keytones, the Tremaines, the Chimes, and the Five Crowns complete the collection. ~ Cub Koda
