The Wizards were formed in 1981 for a Joel Katz studio project, one of several such groups the singer has fronted over the years. The Wizards per se remained a recording group with Katz on lead vocals until roughly 1985, turning out well-recorded facsimiles of vintage doo wop material that unfortunately added little innovation to the genre. This ten-song sampler presents some of the group's better tracks, including the deliberately nostalgic (in truth, all of Katz's projects fall under the nostalgia tag) "Remember Then," the light, sprung rhythm of "The Key to My Heart," and "Street Corner," which starts out as a homage to a lost era and ends up being yet another love song. As a group essentially caught out of time, the Wizards' deliberate throwback sound means they are virtually indistinguishable from the authentic vocal groups of the actual doo wop era, which is either a great thing or a sad thing, depending on one's stance and position on such things. This brief collection is probably all anyone would need to make the call. ~ Steve Leggett
