AllMusic Review by

Klik was a short-lived New York label that never really had much in the way of hits but nonetheless cranked out a small batch of absolutely great doo wop sides before the payola scandal of 1959 closed its doors. This voluminous 30-track compilation brings together obscure gems from the Nobles, the Dreamtones, the Rajahs (early Nutmegs), the Passionettes, the Syncopates, the Berets, the Avalons, the Pyramids, and Five Satins lead singer Fred Parris in various group configurations. No big hits aboard, but a chunk of great vocalizing, all well worth the price of admission.
