AllMusic Review by

Len was a short-lived subsidiary of the Philadelphia based V-Tone label and this 18-track collection rounds up all of the important vocal-group sides that were issued on the label. This is late '50s to early '60s Philly music, full of street-corner promise -- not soul by any means, but with one foot still firmly in doo wop territory. Strong sides from Herb Johnson, the Dreamlovers, the Four Bars, the Masters, Little Jimmy and the Tops, Nelson Dupree, and the Parliaments make this another solid entry in the series.
