Golden Classics – Five Keys


The Newport News, VA, crooners deliver 20 of their classiest, including their big novelty hit "Ling Ting Tong" and the original, enchanting version of Chuck Willis' "Close Your Eyes." Three excellent lead singers -- Rudy West, Maryland Pierce, and Dickie Smith -- kept their sound fresh. Among the selections are many R&B interpretations of standards including "She's the Most," "Dream," and "My Pigeon's Gone." (allmusic)
