The UGHA collectors' show was even better than I'd hoped. All of the groups were great... it brought a lump to the throat just to see the Heartbeats with four original members on stage, and James Dozier, one of the two original leads of the Avalons (the lead on the bridge of Heart's Desire) had every note, and then some... with a nice backup by the Four Dots. And Philly's own Royal Blues showed that they belong on ANY stage presenting vocal group harmony.
