Originally released in 1966 on the Catamount label, the Counts were originally produced by Stan Krause, who also guided the Persuasions. Their sound, all a cappella, is clearly derived from the Motown soul brew that produced groups like the Temptations and the Four Tops, while retaining its basic doo-wop characteristics: nonsense syllables, falsetto running over the top and bass turnarounds. 'Valerie,' is a tragic outpouring of grief; the lead vocal doesn't sing as much as he sobs through his part. By the way, the group had three alternating lead singers, giving them an uncommon versatility. 'Don't Have To Shop Around,' 'My Girl' 'Too Young' plus twelve more.
