Contrary to another reviewer's opinion, the Duprees' five biggest hits are beyond great, they're sensational! With apologies to the lovely Jo Stafford whose much earlier version of "You Belong To Me" belongs in a pantheon of the world's greatest love songs, but as great as Ms Stafford's version is, this one is something to behold. The harmonies backing up lead singer, Joe Canzano, are a thrill to hear -- augmented even more by that glorious saxophone that helped make this one of the greatest slow-dance tunes of 1962. After all these years, I'm still captivated by this magical rendition; no less so by any of the other four that follow the same formula of great harmonies with great saxophone backups. The Duprees really do prove the worth of that addage, "they don't make them like they used to."

These guys had a sound that was similar to other Doo Wop groups but with their own unique harmony and easy to listen to voices. Their harmony is as good as any of the top groups of that era and just a step below Dion and the Belmonts. Known more for their ballads it was certain that when one of them was played at a sock hop, the floor would be packed with slow dancers.

Every song on this CD is easy to listen too. Those that you'll remember (or if you weren't around in that era, the ones that were their biggest hits) You Belong To Me, Have You Heard, and My Own True Love are here and bring back memories of last dances. Why Don't You Believe Me has the sound of a slow big band era song but with Doo Wop harmony an performed with excellence.

This is a must add to any oldies collection because it reflects a sound that was unmistakable and this is one of the groups that made that sound a big part of early rock n roll. Good listening for Doo Wop and street corner harmony fans of all ages.

3.0 out of 5 stars The 5 Greatest Hits by the Duprees...and 13 Fillers March 5, 2004
Format:Audio CD
You have to love the Duprees 5 best known hits, from You Belong
to Me, My Own True Love, Why Don't You Believe Me, Have You Heard
to It's no Sin. Their forte of taking an old standard and stylize
it with their signature sax harmonics produced but 5 worthy efforts, as noted. You have to remember, however, that Dion and the Belmonts did much the same with even greater success. The Duprees really missed a golden opportunity to duplicate their successes with Where Are You, Goodnight My Love, Two Different Worlds and especially the Eddie Fisher hit, I'm Yours, which literally cried out to be Dupree-ized, but wasn't. Too Bad! Thus,the majority of these 18 "Greatest Hits" are really not that great.

5.0 out of 5 stars All The Co-Ed Hits Are Here August 14, 2007
Format:Audio CD
From the late summer of 1962 to February 1964 this Italian-American quintet from Jersey City put seven tunes into the Billboard Pop Hot 100 for the Coed label, three of which crossed over to the Adult Contemporary [AC] charts - and they are all here along with three of the flipsides. That, the sound quality, and the background notes makes this a 5-star compilation in my eyes.

Most of their material revisited hits from the past, but lead Joseph (Joey Vann) Canzano, along with Tom Bialaglow, John Salvato, Mike Arnone, and Joe Santolo, gave those hits new life with their close harmonizing.

They began in 1962 with You Belong To Me, which had been a # 1 for Jo Stafford a decade earlier, taking it to # 7 Hot 100 that September b/w Take Me As I Am [tracks 1 and 2]. For their follow-up single later that year they used the melody of Tara's Theme from Gone With The Wind on My Own True Love which made it to # 2 AC/# 13 Hot 100 in November. The flipside, Ginny, is not included.

In 1963 they scored four times. I'd Rather Be Here In Your Arms was a minor hit, reaching # 91 Hot 100 in February b/w I Wish I Could Believe You. Gone With The Wind, inspired by, but not actually from the film, had been a # 1 for Horace Heidt & His Musical Knights way back in 1937. But their version struggled, reaching # 89 Hot 100 in April b/w Let's Make Love Again.

In September they returned to the Top 40 Pop with the Joni James # 1 hit from 1952, Why Don't You Believe Me? which reached # 10 AC/# 37 Hot 100 b/w My Dearest One. Another Joni James hit, Have You Heard? [# 4 in 1953], made it to # 8 AC/# 18 Hot 100 in December, b/w Love Eyes. Neither of those B-sides are included. nor is the flip [The Sand And The Sea] of their last Coed hit, (It's No) Sin.

3.0 out of 5 stars Doo Wop Memories November 2, 2007
Format:Audio CD
If you're into this kind of music, you'll probably find something to like from these particular "Jersey Boys." I saw a version of the group perform on one of the PBS oldies specials and was impressed with their smooth presentation. The material on this CD is heavy on standards -- "You Belong To Me" being the most well known. My favorite track is "Have You Heard." Good stuff.
