Excellent collection of sides from the late 50s and early 60s recorded by Chance Drum for his Drum, Elgin and other labels. Most of the tracks are high class doo wop including several tracks by the excellent Five Chesnuts featuring lead by former Five Satins vocalist Bill Baker. This group also is featured here backing Marvin Baskerville, Vicki Lee and Rodney Gallant. There's also fine vocal group sounds from Anne Watts, Jimmy Mack and Betty Watts accompanied by The Watts - Mack's I Believe I Love You is a beautiful performance that is on the cusp between doo-wop and soul. There are also a couple of fine rockabilly tracks featuring The Cool Notes - one with vocals by Paul Kepler and one with Peter Concillo. There are also a couple of fine rock 'n' roll ballads by Ralph Miranda & The Deltoros including a fine stripped down cover of Elvis's Don't Leave Me Know. There are also a couple of girl group sides from The Baby Dolls which are the weakest here. Sound quality is excellent and there are brief notes on the label and artists. (FS) (Roots & Rhythms)
