Released:
Label: Capitol Records
Despite the radical upheaval of the 1960s, Jay & The Americans not only survived, they thrived. They scored, with more than a little help from the Brill Building's cadre of heavyweight songwriters, an absurd number of hits. Nearly every one, as this triple-disc set proves, was built of identical material: crooner vocals lifted from a bygone era, saccharine strings and a faint whiff of doo-wop. Imagine Bobby Vinton fronting The Four Seasons, and that's Jay & The Americans. Just about the only track that sounds even vaguely cool is the neo-Elvis groover "You Ain't as Hip as All That, Baby."
