Virtually every track on this collection is decent, and in addition to the twelve original album cuts there are no less than fourteen bonus tracks including an alternate, previously unreleased, take of "Tonight Tonight".

Just accept it for what it Zoom - Vito & The Salutations - Greatest Hits (Vinyl and you'll love it.
However, it turned out there was another local group calling themselves The Mello-Tones who had a national hit called Rosie Lee running since May for Gee Records, and so Silver quickly changed their name to The Mello-Kings and started pressing Herald with the name change. This made its national chart debut in mid-August and eventually peaked at 77 Billboard Pop Top And, despite 8 more single releases through tothat would be it in terms of national success, although the same record did make it to 95 Hot in January in a re-release.
