Memories of Times Square Record Shop, Vols. 1-11 [Box Set]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
With a title like Memories of Times Square Record Shop, you wouldn't think that this Collectables series would have such broad appeal, but it compiles dozens of rare doo wop singles -- most of which are excellent -- that have changed hands for substantial sums. Obsessive doo wop fans won't be 100 percent satisfied, of course (these are, after all, budget releases), but the beauty of these discs is that the music can be enjoyed by the informed and merely interested alike. This box set combines all 11 volumes, with appearances from dozens upon dozens of under-recognized groups. Needless to say, there's plenty to devour.
