AllMusic Review by

The first six cuts on this 16-song CD are priceless pieces of New York City-spawned doo wop that ought to have been better known -- there are thousands of pieces of music of which that could be said, but there's something so finely sung, played, and arranged about "Angel," "Bench of Love," "Dance, Dance, Dance," "Play By the Rules," and "Why Why Why," that it's at once glorious and tragic hearing them -- glorious in their performance, tragic in their obscurity. Kenny Kramer, of Seinfeld fame, was the drummer on four of these tracks, and Sam "The Man" Taylor was the saxophonist. The Scott Stevens solo stuff is less impressive, but enjoyable in the context of the group's history.
