Overview

One of the founding members of Jay & the Americans, Kenny Vance returns with a collection of romantic doo wop material on the appropriately titled Lovers Island. The title and choice of material reflects the atmosphere during the recording sessions. Vance and his band the Planotones met every Tuesday evening for two years at a studio in Queens. They worked at a leisurely pace, perfecting their renditions of such standards as "Everybody's Somebody's Fool," "For Your Precious Love," "Angel Baby," "Stormy Weather," and eight others. Lovers Island is a great modern doo wop disc by a group of guys who obviously still relish the genre.
