Little Anthony & the Imperials already had a couple of major hits (debut "Tears on My Pillow" and "Shimmy, Shimmy, Ko-Ko-Bop") when they released their second album, which was a look back at the music of the generation that preceded them. Record and sleeve are in VG+ condition. $15Details about this copy
