"The Hi-Lo's are arguably the greatest vocal group of all time. In the fifties they brilliantly combined doo-wop, jazz and pop to create an incredible new genre that would change the whole direction of vocal popular music and eventually inspire Brian Wilson to create Pet Sounds. Although they grew from the fifties, the Hi-Los appeal is by no means restricted to that decade. Their sounds anticipated the eclectic musical attitudes of the sixties and seventies influencing the Beach Boys, the Mamas and the Papas and Manhattan Transfer. Listen! is the Hi-Lo's first album issued in 1954. It is a landmark work of considerable artistry and has never been released in digital format anywhere in the world. This is a beautiful record that will appeal to fans of all shades of vocal music; Free Design, The Association, Harpers Bizarre and followers of doo-wop."
