Review

Review Text This two-CD set packages the Aladdin and Capitol tracks of the warblers from Newport News, VA. The 45 tracks released from 1951 to 1958 encompass all their hits and misses. The songs are not in chronological order, which is a real bummer; instead, they're compiled according to popularity. "Ling Ting Tong" (Capitol, September 1954), their must successful recording (number five on the R&B chart and number 28 pop) is the first track, while their first single, "With a Broken Heart" (Aladdin, April 1951), doesn't appear until the 21st track. The collection features their original rendition of Chuck Willis' "Close Your Eyes" and the Ink Spots-ish "The Verdict," along with "Out of Sight, Out of Mind," "Let There Be You," "I Wish I'd Never Learned to Read," and many more. Some later recordings on King and other small labels are not included. ~ Andrew Hamilton
