Album Review

Little Star: The Best of the Elegants sums up the white doo wop group's career in a dozen tracks, including their first and biggest single, the smash hit "Little Star." Not surprisingly, many of their other songs are also in the slow-dance vein of their hit, although songs like "Goodnight," "Still Waiting," and "Get Well Soon" failed to recapture "Little Star"'s magic. Both versions of "Little Boy Blue" and "Please Believe Me" recall Dion & the Belmonts, while "Gettin' Dizzy" and "Pay Day" have a more straightforward rock & roll sound. While their music suffered a little from a lack of focus, the Elegants were still a fine doo wop/rock group, and Little Star: The Best of the Elegants is a welcome collection of their best moments.
