Nowadays Dootone is chiefly remembered for its recordings of risqué comedian Redd Foxx. However, the label (which later changed its name to Dooto) also released many recordings of doowop and R&B groups including the Penguins, the Medallions, the Calvanes and the Meadowlarks. Although Dootone Records might be thought of as a one-hit-wonder label, there are many delights to discover here on this 2 disc compilation.
