AllMusic Review by

Here's the early story of R&B reissue label Relic Records as told by collectors Donn Fileti and original founder Eddie Gries, from their humble beginnings hustling old, forgotten doo wop masters from a store in Hackensack, NJ to the releases of those very first singles on their fledgling label. There are some pretty raw sides here by obscure, one-off groups like the Unique Teens, the Levees, the Zircons, the Academics, and the Four Most. The story of a very important reissue label -- one of the very best at doing what they specialize in -- begins right here.
