"I was recently watching a PBS program on Do-Wop. While I was occupied writing something, a man started singing on the program. I recognized the song and the voice. It was Mr. Blue by the Fleetwoods. When I looked up I saw an impeccably dressed older man and two equally impressively dressed older women singing this marvelous song. They sounded as good as they did when the song was originally recorded. I never really paid much attention to the Fleetwoods before I saw that performance. But they performed the song with such elegance and so professionally that I was blown away. I purchased this CD after that and I have to say that I am sorry I hadn't appreciated their music sooner. Their voices are soft and clear. Their harmonization is first rate. This CD does them justice since the people that released it were true to the original recordings. They resisted the impulse to "improve" the music with a bunch of added in background stuff. Perhaps the reviewer below takes the lack of added fluff as a poor quality CD. But, in fact, the opposite is true. This CD is first rate; both for the music and the quality of remastering and production. If you like the Fleetwoods or just like Do-Wop, get this CD. You won't be sorry."
