Overview

A meticulous, aptly-titled anthology of Lee Andrews and the Hearts' recordings, but if you're not knee-deep into them, one of their smaller collections will be easier on your Visa and should suffice. This is the whole kit and caboodle: 61-tracks of classic '50s doo wop, featuring previously unreleased songs, demos, and alternate versions, as well as every A- and B-side they released, from their debut "Maybe You'll Be There" on Rainbow Records (1954) to the beautiful "Island of Love" on Lost Nite Records (1968). The pioneering group influenced a slew of Philly vocal groups, including the original, pre-Teddy Pendergrass, Blue Notes and the Intruders. The Intruders redid the Hearts' most successful recording, "Teardrops," on their Save the Children album. For Collectors Only is a flowing gathering of smooth, classy doo wop at its best.
