The royalty of Doo Wop laid down some of their best tracks for the King, Federal, and DeLuxe labels. This disc collects some of those great tracks by The Platters, The Swallows, Hank Ballard & The Midnighters, and many more.
A solid 20-track collection of vocal group and R&B offerings from Sid Nathan's stable of labels. In addition to classics from the Dominoes, Hank Ballard and the Midnighters, Otis Williams and the Charms, and the Checkers, the set also features rarities and hits from the Chanters ("No No No"), the Swallows ("It Ain't the Meat, It's the Motion"), the Platters ("Voo-Vee-Ah-Bee"), the Guytones ("She's Mine"), Donnie Elbert ("Hear My Plea"), the Hurricanes ("Pistol Packin' Mama"), Little Willie John ("Leave My Kitten Alone"), and Wynonie Harris ("Loving Machine"). An excellent blend of obscure material and R&B hits. ~ Cub Koda
