Product Description

On Bob Stanley’s label, here is a warm and wonderful collection of American vocal group rarities that evoke the spirit of the innocent fifties – the after school romance, sharing a soda as the jukebox plays haunting and atmospheric vocal harmony 45s.

Quite possibly it was never like this, and we’ve been conditioned by Happy Days and American Graffiti, but these records are real enough and they drip atmosphere, with beautiful vocals from the east coast (the Wanderers, featuring northern soul legend Ray Pollard, and a super-rare early Frankie Valli single) to the west.

• Three steps beyond Dream Boats and Petticoats, this is the definitive sound of romantic rock’n’roll
• A perfect late summer soundtrack
• Most tracks available for the first time on CD
• Gorgeous artwork
• Thorough sleevenotes by noted pop historian Bob Stanley
