Something of a genre-bender, this all-white teenage group from Pittsburgh featured a female singer with a naturally true high range, mostly original material written by their equally talented lead singer Jimmy Beamont (in conjunction with their producer), and a sound that was equal parts Four Freshmen and fifties R & B. One of the first 'rock' groups of the era to record with full orchestra, songs such as the justifiably famous 'Since I Don't Have You,' 'This I Swear,' 'Lonely Way' (the latter a favorite of the Manhattan Transfer) are surprisingly mature and complex for voices so young. This CD culls material from their early releases on the Calico label, as well as a couple of cuts added for this album: 'Stardust' and 'Blossoms In The Snow.'
