AllMusic Review by

This is the second volume in Collectables' Spotlite series focusing on doo wop and R&B treasures from the vaults of Apollo Records. Among the 14 tracks are a combination of tunes by familiar names like the 5 Royales, the Larks, and the Key Notes, along with obscurities including "The Fires Burn No More" (the Chesters), "Thrill of Romance" (the Gaytunes), and "Girlie That I Love" (the Cellos). Even though some of these tracks never gained national attention, they deserved to.
