REMEMBER ME BABY: Cameo Parkway Vocal Groups Vol. 1. CD

The Philadelphia-based Cameo Parkway label was one of America’s great independent labels for vocal groups, home to big stars like the Dovells, Tymes and Orlons. But right alongside the big names and big hits in the label’s vaults lie untold doo wop treasures waiting to be discovered, and that’s what this 24-track collection really delivers. While the big names are represented, with the Dovells and Tymes  each contributing one track  unreleased until this collection, it’s the lesser lights on Remember Me Baby that will shine the brightest for doo wop and vocal group collectors, and with a full 23 out of the 24 tracks new to CD, and all but three from the original tapes, there is much to savor even for the casual vocal group fan. Ed Osborne’s liner notes illuminate the street corners from which these artists hailed. Produced by ABKCO’s Chief Engineer Teri Landi.
