"The Brooklyn Bridge featured the vocals of a doo wop legend, Johnny Maestro. He was the lead singer of the Crests who released one the essential doo wop records and one the first great rock songs "16 Candles". After that song, Mr. Maestro languished for most of the 60's until a band he was in joined forces with another band to form the Brooklyn Bridge. The first song they released, "Worst That Could Happen", became a huge hit, peaking at #3 in early 1969. That song is still a staple of oldies radio and gave Mr. Maestro new life. Sadly it was short lived. After two more minor hits, the beautiful "Welcome Me Love" and "Blessed Is The Rain", the band disappeared from the charts and they broke up shortly afterwards. This set is a little excessive, but it does give you just about ever song the band recorded. That's good and bad as the first disk contains the above three songs and a couple of other good numbers in "School Days" and "Requiem", but the second disk doesn't offer much."
The best at this point

"I remember when this set was released in the early 1990's. I procrastinated in buying it and it disapeared (at least off of the store shelves). Now I finally own it and am very happy that I do. To date, this is the best collection of the bands music avaliable. The sound quality is also actually very good also. It would be nice if someone out there would re-release the groups 4 actual albums on CD. But this set does for the most part cover it all. However, "Nights in White satin" is still missing."
