As this series progresses, there's a higher proportion of obscure material involved. This is both good and bad: it's good to find worthy minor hits that have largely missed the CD revolution, but some of them didn't make it above the '80s on the charts for good reason. Nonetheless, there are some real goodies here, whether hard to find or not: the Del Vikings' "Come Go with Me," and Bobby Freeman's "Do You Want to Dance," the El Dorados' "At My Front Door," the Rivingtons' "Papa-Oom-Mow-Mow," and Joe Bennett's "Black Slacks." Among the rarities, the most interesting items are John Fred's "Shirley" (recorded almost ten years before "Judy in Disguise"), Ronald & Ruby's original version of "Lollipop" (surpassed commercially by the Chordettes' rendition), the Quotations' "Imagination" (top-flight doo wop), and Bunker Hill's "Hide and Go Seek" (described in the liners as "like a gospel holler in a squash court"). Pick find: the Pentagons' "I Wonder," which sounds like a great lost Drifters hit from the early '60s.
