Consumer Guide Reviews:

Showcase [Capitol, 1976]
Carola thinks they're cuter than the Jackson 5. I think their single is cuter than their album. C

Best of the Sylvers [Capitol, 1978]
They were nice enough to program this fast-side/slow-side. Now if only the fast side didn't fade from "Boogie Fever" and "Hot Line" (by Lewis & Perren) to "Cotton Candy" (add Yarian) to "High School Dance" (Switch to four Sylvers) to "Free Style" (switch to one Sylver). B-
