Although not a fully-fledged Girl Group, The Orlons epitomised the 60s "Girl Group Sound" and are usually categorised and celebrated thus. They comprised three girls and a guy, all teenagers, from Overbrook High School in Philadelphia; first soprano/occasional lead Marlena Davis, second soprano/principal lead Rosetta Hightower, alto/occasional lead Shirley Brickley and baritone/bass Stephen Caldwell.

Although latecomers to the Cameo-Parkway stable of stars, the quality of their recorded legacy has accorded them a greater status than some of their labelmates, who are largely viewed as purveyors short-lived dance crazes.

This compilation anthologises all their releases during 1961-62 and features their first three hit 45s, 'I'll Be True', 'The Wah-Watusi' and 'Don't Hang Up', plus their first two LPs, The Wah-Watusi and All The Hits By The Orlons.

Also included are a couple of million-selling Dee Dee Sharp 45s on which they sang back-up vocals, 'Mashed Potato Time' and 'Gravy (For My Mashed Potatoes)'.
