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.
