This outstanding Collectables series, "Doo Wop As Seen On TV", features the original recordings of those great groups that appeared on the popular PBS television series. Highlights: The Five Satins' "In The Still Of The Night", The Charts' "Deserie" and the Chimes' "Once In A While".
This is the sixth volume in Collectables' Doo Wop as Seen on TV series, each of which is a brief ten-song sampler of vintage doo wop singles (it's hard to say what television has to do with any of this). Too short to be much more than a budget loss leader, this installment features the Five Satins' classic "In the Still of the Night" and the Crests' exuberant "The Angels Listened In," among other hits. Serious fans of the genre will already have everything here, and the short running time makes this a low priority purchase even for novice listeners. The music is fine, but there's just not much of it. ~ Steve Leggett
