AllMusic Review by

This is all killer, no filler doo wop from the Five Boroughs in New York City. This second volume has even more obscure material than volume one did, including tracks by the amazing Harmonaires, the Thunderbirds, the Kodaks, the Du-Droppers, and Bop Chords. This is stellar, rawer, and yet much more sophisticated music than came form Los Angeles at the time, and this set contrasts the differences in rhythmic variation between the two coasts as the role of the baritone and bass singers functions in some ways nearly independently.
