AllMusic Review by

The ninth set in the series collects 14 classic vocal-group performances, many of which came to prominence from a radio show sponsored by Slim's Times Square Records shop. A few familiar tunes are included -- "I'll Be Forever Loving You" by the El Dorados, "So in Love" by the Classics -- but mainly the focus is on obscure but excellent doo wop by the Bop Chords, Chaperones, Opals, and the Desires. An excellent purchase for collectors and passive listeners alike.
