An hour-plus of fine female doo wop ballads, R&B rockers and soul from the Bronx, with many songs written by fabled Harlem matriarch Zell Sanders. The Hearts featured lead vocals by Baby Washington, Lezli Valentine, Betty Harris, Hartsy Maye and others, with some male back-ups from the Plants and wild sax, guitar and piano solos. These songs were recorded for the J & S, Zell's and Tuff labels. Baby Washington went on to have a very successful career at Sue Records. The Hearts span the divide between R&B & soul and therefore should appeal to fans of both genres. Thus is the first legitimate release of this material on CD. Sleeve note is by the erudite Mick Patrick.
