Rock 'n' Roll Legends

by Frankie Lymon & the Teenagers

CD

Overview

Frankie Lymon was just 13 years old when his group the Teenagers scored a Top 10 hit with the song "Why Do Fools Fall in Love" in 1956. The song was a superb example of classic New York doo wop, and Lymon's masterful soprano vocals made him a star overnight; by the time the group released their second record, "I Want You to Be My Girl," he'd been given top billing, with the act now known as Frankie Lymon & the Teenagers. Lymon and the group quickly racked up a string of hit singles, and the group developed a huge following in England (they even headlined at the London Palladium), but by 1958, Lymon had stepped out as a solo act, and his career would never recover; he died of a drug overdose in 1968. Rock 'n' Roll Legends features 25 tracks from Lymon & the Teenagers' glory days, including such classics as "Who Do Fools Fall in Love," "I Promise to Remember," "Baby, Baby," "The ABC's of Love," "I'm Not a Juvenile Delinquent," "Goody Goody," and many more. For most fans, this is everything they'll ever need from this legendary act.
