Album Review

As part of Collectables' Great Group Series, the Crests are featured on this budget-priced compilation. Among the ten tracks are the original versions of their two chart-topping hits, "Sixteen Candles" (1958) and "Earth Angel" (1959), along with lesser-heard items such as "The Angels Listened In," "In the Still of the Night," and "I Thank the Moon." Even though this compilation is missing "Step by Step" and "Trouble in Paradise," it's an enjoyable and effective overview.

Formed: 1956

Genre: Pop

Maestro went solo in 1960, scoring the next year with "Model Girl"...
