As part of Collectables' Golden Classics series, the Dixie Belles are spotlighted on previously released material originally recorded for Savage in the early '60s. The 14 tracks include "Way Down Yonder in New Orleans," "Swanee River (Where They Rock All Night)," "The Beale Street Dog," and their biggest hit, "(Down At) Papa Joe's." Considering the obscurity of CDs available by the girl group, this affordable disc should please both casual fans and collectors. ~ Al Campbell
