Album Review

One of the few truly successful modern-day doo wop albums, with a variety of material and top notch performances to commend it. The recuts of their early hits ("The Lion Sleeps Tonight," "I Hear Trumpets Blow, " "Tonight I Fell in Love") sound wonderful, the new material (the title track, "Merry Merry, " "Just a Thought") works, and the group sings like angels. What more could you ask for? Highly recommended.

The lion sleeps tonite/tonight is a hilarious classic, and you should check out the rest of the album, but you HAVE TO GET AT LEAST THAT SONG, IF ONLY THAT SONG. I've said my peace, and willl now go away
