AllMusic Review by

The initial entry into this sub series from Itzy Records chronicling the Pittsburgh scene of the 1950s and early 60s is subtitled For Lovers Only and features 24 doo-wop obscurities that firmly burrows into the heart of what that city preferred in their hometown sound. Highlights are numerable, but fans of the slow and smooth should take the time to investigate "You" by the Initials, "I Do Love You" by Tex and the Chex, "Oh My Angel" by Bertha Tillman, "I Don't Want Everything" by Jimmy McHugh and "High On A Hill" by Scott English, the closest anything on here comes to being an actual hit. A solid set that's perfect for slow dancing in the kitchen to.
