Description by OLDIES.com:
James "Shep" Sheppard formed the Heartbeats in the mid-'50s and their silky smooth sound soon made it onto the charts with hits such as "A Thousand Miles Away" and "Everybody's Somebody's Fool". When the Heartbeats disbanded in 1960, Shep formed Shep & The Limelights and this R&B trio was even more successful than Sheppard's first band, reaching #2 with "Daddy's Home". This collection of over 40 selections includes both group's biggest hits as well as unreleased tracks.

This CD contains 30 tracks by The Heartbeats (4 previously unreleased) and 10 tracks by Shep & The Limelights.
/Shep & The Limelights.
Unknown Contributor Roles: Shep & the Limelites; The Heartbeats.
This features all of the Heartbeats and Shep & the Limelights' best recordings -- two groups with slightly different lineups and one strong constant: James Sheppard on lead vocals. The 40 tracks make this collection definitive, but some may balk at paying for two discs worth of material. Sheppard's smooth tenor was obviously a source of inspiration for George "Smitty" Smith, the Manhattans' original lead singer, who sang with a similar ache in his tenor. There are many timeless pieces here, most written by Sheppard, to warm your heart, including "A Thousand Miles Away," "Down on My Knees," "500 Miles to Go," "Three Steps From the Altar," "Our Anniversary," "Daddy's Home," and "What Did Daddy Do." A slow-song specialist, Sheppard did many up-tempo tunes with both the Heartbeats and the Limelights, making this a varied collection. ~ Andrew Hamilton
