    "Where Do All The Hippies Meet? South Street! South Street!"

    Yes, Abkco Records, who have owned the Cameo & Parkway master tapes since 1967 have finally released these hits on CD!
    The Orlons had a highly recognizable sound. Not just because they had great harmonies and lead singer, Rosetta Hightower sang with such conviction.....but they also had sole male member Steve Caldwell chiming in with a "oh baby!" here and there.
    This Philadelphia quartet gave Cameo Records some serious hits from 1961 to 1964! Their first chart hit, "Wah Watusi" hit # 2 on Billboard; followed by "Don't Hang Up" at # 4 and "South Street" at # 3. Very few groups can claim that their first three chart hits were all in the national Top 5!
    The Orlons hits had a funky, light hearted, feel-good groove to them.
    Besides their big hits, this CD also includes the noteable "B" side: "Don't Throw Your Love Away". It was covered successfully by British Invasion rockers, The Searchers in 1964.
    By the their hit "South Street" the Orlons were not referring to the Haight Ashbury love children "hippies"....with their line"...where do all the hippies meet? South Street! South Street!..." The Hippies were another recording act on Cameo/Parkway Records, who had their single "Memory Lane" reissued in The Orlons hit had a built it plug for their label mates "The Hippies".
    Get this Orlon's collection! It swings

    Bobby Lauser
