AllMusic Review by

Obscure recordings of mostly Detroit artists on some of the city's many labels, including early Motown sides by the Satintones, their first male vocal group. Also on board are the Distants, the Voice Masters (with Ty Hunter and Lamont Dozier as lead singers), and a hard-to-find Nolan Strong & the Diablos tune, "Someday You'll Want Me." Some of these sides should have done much better, particularly the "Charlie Brown"-sounding "Got to Get to School on Time," by the Five Quails. A collector's dream.
