    Liner Note Author: Ed Engel.
    It is with the series of region-specific doo wop compilations that Collectables reminds listeners that doo wop was once as huge as rock & roll is now, luring countless groups into the vocal acrobatics that comprise its compelling nature. Just like the other collections in the series, Philadelphia Doo Wop holds a fortune made of both well-known acts and quality unknowns to draw an aural portrait of an area. The Silhouettes' "Get a Job" appears here, as does Patti Labelle & the Bluebelles' "I Sold My Heart to the Junkman," alongside lesser-known but equally engaging entries such as the superb "Let Me In" by the Sensations. Of all the compilations Collectibles has assembled (gathering material from California, New Haven, the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Manhattan), Philadelphia Doo Wop is definitely at the top of the list. ~ Gregory McIntosh
