The precise recording dates of this CD is elusive until one looks at the credits — the notes give a nice general history of Johnny Maestro and the Brooklyn Bridge, but it's only on checking the production notes (inside of the package) that the modern origins of the recordings at hand become clear. The packaging might lead the unwary purchaser to think these were vintage sides. That said, the stuff sounds great — these recordings do successfully mimic a classic late-'50s/early-'60s doo wop/R&B harmony vocal sound, a little on the slick side and a bit cleaner than what one ever heard on records at the time, but nothing to offend too badly, apart from some synthesized sounds here and there (which are inevitable with modern privately made recordings such as this). There's nothing revelatory, but it is a superb showcase for the post-2000 version of the group, and a lot of fun for those who take their vintage music in off of PBS broadcast concerts and the more slickly packaged oldies shows.

After making a name for himself as lead singer of the Crests, vocalist Johnny Maestro formed Brooklyn Bridge in 1968 and scored a gold record the next year on Buddah with a cover of the Fifth Dimension's heartbroken "Worst That Could Happen." Brooklyn Bridge were an amalgam of Maestro, the Del Satins (the vocal group that backed Dion on many of his early-'60s solo hits), and a brassy outfit called the Rhythm Method. Brooklyn Bridge enjoyed several more hits in 1969 and 1970, and Maestro often performed on the oldies circuit during the decades to follow. He died of cancer at his home in Cape Coral, FL, in March 2010 at the age of 70.
