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)'

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com
(via the “Buy Used” button above) are fulfilled by us at our physical store, they require separate shopping carts and checkout procedures.
It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50¢ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.

A Note About Pre-Orders
Orders containing both pre-orders and “Available to Order” items from flyvintageandvinyl.com will be shipped in one package when the pre-order title(s) is/are released.

International Orders, Box Sets and Larger Items
may incur an additional shipping fee and we’ll notify you by email before we process your order. Customs forms for international orders are marked as "Merchandise"
and we are not responsible for any additional customs fees when packages arrive at their destination country. Select items aren't allowed to be shipped outside the U.S.
