AllMusic Review by

The aptly titled LOST TREASURES is a must-own for the serious doo-wop fan. Although the collection is larded out with relatively rare but not impossible to find singles, including the minor classics "Weeping Willow" and "Our Anniversary," the heart of the set are the 16 previously unreleased songs and alternate takes. It boggles the mind that songs as melodically wonderful and beautifully sung as "Please Be Mine Tonight" and "That's Love" weren't released at the time. While a few of the alternate takes are minor changes at best-it's nice to have a clear stereo mix of "I Got Time," though-the early rough version of their career-defining "In the Still of the Night" is an interesting look at an early stage of the finest doo-wop single of all time.
