The distinctive sound of The Duprees & their best-selling hit 'You Belong To Me' has been much copied over the years. Formed in 1962, the group's sound blended the earlier vocal harmony sound of The Swing Era (Jo Stafford et al) with the soul & beat of rock 'n' roll. This 31-track CD assembles all their Coed sides, many reissued here for the first time & many in stereo. Ace. 1995.

"One of the best vocal groups from the east coast that treated a "standard" as only the Duprees could. Their combination of vocal group harmony along with big band orchestrations is a perfect match. All their hits are on this disc and then some, and the best part is you get to hear your favorites in true stereo. Thirty one songs, and every one of them a killer. I have two favorites on this disc, a hit they had in '62 called "I Wish I Could Believe You", and another song that was actually the B side to "My Own True Love" titled "Ginny", it's one fantastic doo wop ballad. If you want to add all the Duprees hits to your collection get this disc."
The best Duprees C.D. you'll ever hear.

"I looked and looked on the internet and this is where I landed. This is one great cd. As usual ACE does a superb remastering job. If you see ACE snap it up. Most songs are in stereo. The mono ones sound as good as the stereo ones. Every song is clear as a bell. I don't know where ACE gets their source tapes but these are superb. Forget the 75 clams they want for the Rhino cd. Rhino puts out great cds but ACE is as good if not better. You'll be 100% satisfied with this cd. Guaranteed!!!!!"
