The Ultimate Doo Wop Collection [Collectables Limited Edition]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Cub Koda

As to the actual contents of the discs, oddly it's the second volume in the set that contains the majority of garden variety hits like "In the Still of the Night," "Book of Love," "Long Lonely Nights," "Get a Job," and "Denise" with rarities like "I'm So Young" by the Students and "Ankle Bracelet" by the Pyramids largely dotting the landscape of disc one. With the availability of Rhino's excellent Doo-Wop Box series, there's no reason to look at this set as the 'ultimate collection' by any stretch. If you're really on a budget, you can buy these two discs separately minus the box and the headphones.
