AllMusic Review by

You can't accuse Wizard Records of false advertising -- the title tells the whole story. A compilation of familiar doo wop hits done by unfamiliar artists. Every selection is a remake that came out on small labels. The CD booklet depicts authentic 45-rpm scans of some of the songs. Picks include "My True Story" (originally the Jive Five) but done here by Emil Frank & the Toppers; "Sincerely" (Moonglows) by the Jayos; "Tears on My Pillow" (Little Anthony & the Imperials) by Stanley Brown & the Majestics; and "Daddy's Home" by the Hitparaders.
