No, the Tokens weren't exactly burning up the charts in the years represented here -- Jay & The Americans and the ubiquitous Four Seasons were having a somewhat easier time connecting with radio stations and the public -- but the music here is all worthwhile, and one has to give special credit to the Varese producers for reaching out to one of the group's genuine obscurities: "Life Is Groovy," a late 1960s attempt at hipness authored by renowned teacher/conductor Ralph Affoumado, that harks back almost a decade in style (and, not coincidentally, features the Tokens collaborating with the Kirby Stone Four), but has enough hooks to stay in the listener's head for decades.

Tokens fans are advised to pick up the individual B.T.Puppy singles as desired, and check out the BMG 'Best of' (RCA cuts) cd, which, though far from comprehensive, sounds so glorious you'll feel as if you are there during the original early '60's recording sessions. VareseVintage is to be commended for their attempt to rescue this lesser-known segment of the Tokens' sixties recordings. This one rounds up those: He's in Town; I Hear the Trumpets Blow ; the soft-pop gem Life Is Groovy (with the Kirby Stone Four), and more. All Roads Lead Home (Hobbs & Shaw Remix) [feat.

Reviewed in the United States on September 28, 2014 Though technically a two-hit wonder - their first single was the top-20 charting "Tonight I Fell in Love" - the Tokens are popularly known for 1961's chart-topping "The Lion Sleeps Tonight."

To virtually everyone's mind, anything labeled as containing "the very best of the Tokens" would have to include their early-'60s number one hit "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" and their 1961 Top 20 single "Tonight I Fell in Love."

Fastest way to farm Dungeoneering tokens?
The title of this compilation is at least partially misleading.

Fantastic oldies, DooWop CD and the choice of songs was great.
