You'd think that after ten collections, these compilations would start to weaken but you'd be wrong. Amazing what you can do with great taste and an even greater vinyl collection. Two cuts that stood out for me were the Highlighters' Have a Little Faith and Babylove's Do it for Me --both deep soul leads with sweet soul harmonies. But don't overlook the Implements' I Wish it Were Me, the Enchanted Five's Your Love Comes Slower than Never (my favorite title) and Porgy and the Monarch's Magic Maker, Music Maker (later recut by the Jive Five with Arlene Smith and the Chantels).

13 tracks, 42 min, recommended
This stuff's so obscure I haven't been able to find any info on the tunes here! But if you like your oldies slow & easy, sweet & greasy, this is an exceptional collection! Most sound like they're from the early-mid 60s, with band names like Thee Dupremes, The Suenos, The Matadors, titles like My Vows To You/ There's No Other Girl/ Forgive Me If A Cry. The only cover here is Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying by The Mumy . I Want You, I Need You, I Love You by Hector Rivera & The Latin Renaissance isn't the Elvis song. Every dance a slow dance!

VARIOUS ARTISTS LRCD 5900 The Best Doo-Wops Of Lute Records ● CD $17.98
26 tracks, 60 mins, very good
I wouldn't consider The Hollywood Argyles a Doo Wop group--more of a pop/ novelty rock `n' roll outfit--but they were probably Lute Records biggest seller and, hey, I love Alley Oop, and the rest of their songs are pretty good. The balance of the CD beyond the 4 Argyles tracks would more or less fall into the doo wop category including sides by The Uptones, Monorails, Emmy Lou, Arrogants and others. This is a no frills comp with no nothin' but a track listing. The sound is good and the tunes are mostly winners, with a few of them being rather hard to find elsewhere. (JM)
