Description by OLDIES.com:

The Marcels had a mega-hit (# 1) in 1961 with their version of "Blue Moon". The B-side, "Goodbye To Love" was a very strong ballad. The follow-up hit, "Heartaches", is also in this collection of their best. Their covers here of the Spaniels' "You Gave Me Peace Of Mind", Little Anthony & The Imperials' "Two People In The World" and The El Dorados' "I'll Be Forever Loving You" are a must for doo-wop fans.

Product Description:

Liner Note Author: Marv Goldberg.
Pittsburgh's Marcels are chiefly remembered for their breakneck doo wop version of "Blue Moon" from 1961, and it is indeed a classic, but this unsung ensemble had more going for it than just that song. This set includes the Marcels' key tracks from their stay at Colpix Records (1961 to 1963), which means it has "Blue Moon," of course, but also the impressive "Heartaches" and a brilliant cover of the Gershwins' "Summertime," highlighted by a delightful lead vocal from Cornelius Harp. Most of what you need is here, but the 38-track Complete Colpix Sessions is really the way to go for a full and complete dose of this fun vocal group. ~ Steve Leggett

The Mighty Marcels! Music Lover: from BRONX, NY US -- November, 26, 2014

When you think about the Marcels, automatically "Blue Moon" comes to mind! However, this group is not a one hit wonder! Other classic hits followed like "Heartaches", " Summertime", "Melancholy Baby" and " I Wanna Be The Leader"! The vocal interplay between the late Cornelius Harp and Fred Johnson is legendary and every song on this cd is highly enjoyable! The Marcels are just as popular now as they were back in 1961 where radio stations placed "Blue Moon" among the top ten records of that upside down year! Still performing over these 50 years, The Marcels are still showstoppers on a concert stage!
