  1. The only song of this trio that made it up to my part of the world was “No Not Much.” The Vogues were a throwbsck to a different time, but they deserved to be heard. Much better than the other two entries, in my opinion.

  2. I remember No Not Much, and I remember Don’t Touch Me, but the C&W version, and I don’t remember the 3rd song, but I do remember the Brooklyn Bridge and Johnny Maestro’s dreamy voice.
