The Ad Libs & Friends

by The Ad LibsThe Ad Libs




The Ad Libs & Friends feature recordings by the Ad Libs, who scored with "The Boy From New York City"; the Dixie Cups of "Iko Iko" and "Chapel of Love" fame; and three less successful Red Bird and World Artist recording groups: the Poets, the Butterflies, and the Charmettes. The Poets -- Don McPherson, Luther Simmons, and Tony Silvester -- who became the Insiders then Main Ingrediant represent with "Merry Christmas Baby"; the Butterflies do Ellie Greenwich and Jeff Barry's "Gee Baby Gee"; while the interesting Charmettes wail about their "Sugar Boy." These 18 sweet mid-'60s Brill Building sounds revisit a time when music was sugar, spice, and everything nice.
