    Crests/Don Dell with the Up-Starts, Group of 2 (1959-1961). Two New York City group rarities, one (Crests) a classic vocal group, the other (Don Dell with the Up-Starts) not widely known outside the NYC area. The Angels Listened In was the only EP from the Crests, fronted by Johnny Maestro, and included their signature classic "16 Candles" plus "Six Nights A Week", "Flower of Love", and the title cut. Our offering is in VG 5/VG 5. The even rarer single "A Special Love"/"Someone For Me" by Don Dell with the Up-Starts on East Coast Records came with a cardboard sleeve similar to an EP cover. Condition: EX 7/EX 7.
