    The Ray-O-Vacs
    Riding High 1949-1957 (2-CD)

    Despite their obvious popularity very little is actually
    known about the Ray-O-Vacs and this is probably because the doo wop
    historians of the 60s and 70s did not consider them to be a true vocal
    group and the R&B fraternity found them too pop to take much
    interest in. This 2CD set is the most comprehensive collection of the
    groups material to date and will show both factions were wrong as we
    present these 44 recordings little heard since their original release.

    The Ray-O-Vacs were responsible for the original
    recording of 'Besame Mucho' which was a hit for the group and then later
    covered by The Coasters. The groups only other two charting hits: 'I'll
    Always Be in Love with you' and 'You Gotta Love Me Baby Too' are also
    included here.

    Includes the solo releases by lead singer Les Harris for
    the first time on CD and it has to be said that everything on offer
    here is highly sought after amongst group collectors so this really is a
    must have.

    Fully detailed liner notes.
