4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Job By Collectables .... And Yet ... August 13, 2007
Format:Audio CD
In putting out this collection of the best of The Dominoes covering their Federal/King years, Collectables does a decent job, giving us all eleven of their charted hits from 1951 to 1953.

Where they falter, in my estimation anyway, is in presenting just four of the B-sides, while including 10 tracks [6, 15, 18 to 25] that were failed singles. Among those, however, I was happy to see the seasonal tune, Christmas In Heaven, as well as the follow-up to the smash Sixty Minute Man, Can't Do Sixty No More. Hard to figure why that one didn't chart.

When they started out the group was known simply as The Dominoes and consisted of Clyde McPhatter, Joe Lamont, Bill Brown, and Charlie White doing vocals, along with pianist Billy Ward, and early in 1951 they hit what then passed for the R&B charts with Do Something For Me, a # 6 b/w Chicken Blues.

Not a bad start, but when their next cut hit the airwaves and stores they became established as a force in the field. Sixty Minute Man, with bass Bill Brown on lead vocal, shot to # 1 R&B, stayed there for 14 solid weeks, and spent a total of 30 weeks on the charts, also reaching # 17 on the Billboard Pop charts, b/w I Can't Escape From You [one of the missing B-sides here]. By the end of that year they had their third hit with I Am With You, # 8 b/w Weeping Willow Blues.

Early in 1952, the year White and Brown were replaced by David McNeil and James Van Loan, That's What You're Doing To Me rose to # 7 b/w When The Swallows Come Back To Capistrano, followed by another huge one, Have Mercy Baby, which also made it to # 1 that summer, stayed there for 10 weeks, and spent 20 on the charts. The flipside was Deep Sea Blues, also omitted here. On all these hits, except Sixty Minute Man, Clyde McPhatter was the lead vocal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Overview June 30, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm a big fan of early R&B and Billy Ward's Dominoes is one of my favorite groups.
Plenty of hits, several "B" sides and some tunes I wasn't familiar with (still good music though!)
The sound quality is excellent.
My only quibble is the lack of decent liner notes.
But the music is great...
