Thanks to Joan K for the 4th in the series of 5 vocal group compilations issued by Jubilee in 1959 / 60. It's an eclectic mix this time round with The Orioles and The Brown Dots representing the older form of vocal group R&B, raunch from The Toppers with "Baby Let Me Bang Your Box" (about a piano, I think) and the much more modern sound of The Coney Island Kids.
Above: Billboard review, June 27th 1960. Note that the LP was originally supposed to include tracks by The Marylanders, but these were replaced by tracks by The Teardrops.
Deke (or more usually Deek) Watson had a long career going back to the 1940s lineup of the The Inkspots. Marv Goldberg has a great article on Deek Watson, The Brown Dots, and The 4 Tunes here:
Well worth a read!
Thanks to Joan K for the sounds 'n' scans.
