Discovered by high school classmate Len Barry, the Orlons (Shirley Brickley, Marlena Davis, Rosetta Hightower and Stephen Caldwell) were probably Cameo Parkway’s most popular vocal group and certainly the label’s top girl group. This twofer presents their only two charting albums, their 1962 debut ‘The Wah-Watusi’ and 1963’s ‘South Street’—both featuring Top 5 title tracks—in their original pristine mono, with notes by Gene Sculatti that include great quotes from band member Caldwell (he of that ultra-low “frog” voice)! Includes ‘Dedicated to the One I Love; Tonight; Mashed Potato Time; The Plea; Gravy (for My Mashed Potatoes); I’ll Be True; The Wah-Watusi; He’s Gone; Let Me In; Over the Mountain, Across the Sea; I Met Him on a Sunday; (Happy Birthday) Mr. Twenty-One; Walk Right In; Big Daddy; Cement Mixer; Mister Sandman; Charlie Brown; Gather ‘Round; South Street; Between 18th & 19th on Chestnut Street; Don’t Let Go; Muskrat Ramble; Pokey Lou’, and ‘We Got Love’.
