The Dedications, without a doubt, are the embodiment of New York City style Neo Doo Wop --- pervasive background falsetto, strong leading voice, pleasant harmony, etc. And it seems that I never grow weary of hearing it. What I wonder is how this group has heretofore escaped my attention? Thank you for alerting me.
