A really superb collection for those interested not just in Doo Wop but uplifting old school group harmonies. A 2-disc set, with 51 songs altogether, for just £3.99. Mine arrived in the post this morning and I'm currently enjoying it so far, there's some really nice gems on it. If you're a fan of R&B, Blues, Jazz, Soul etc, then I'd strongly recommend giving Doo Wop a chance. Here's the item description:
"Emerging from the streets of America's north eastern cities such as New York, Chicago, Philadelphia and Baltimore, Doo Wop took it's roots primarily from Blues and R&B to create an accessible vocal style which came closest to the mainstream pop style of the 1950s. This Essential Doo Wop Collection covers the early influential vocal groups such as The Orioles, The Clovers, The Imperials and The Platters. We then move on to cover the classic Doo Wop years of the mid-1950s with a string of classic vocal performances. Opening with the Frankie Lymon classic, Why Do Fools Fall In Love, the fun continues with more classics by Dion & The Belmonts - I Wonder Why, The Spaniels - Goodnite Sweetheart Goodnite, The Five Satins - In Still Of The Night, The Crests - Sixteen Candles, The Penguins - Earth Angel, The Silhouettes - Get A Job (possibly the most popular Doo Wop song of them all) and many more. We also feature a host of not so well known names, many of them one hit wonders but boy what hits!! Take a listen to The Kodaks - Make Believe World, The Love Notes - Tonight, The Charts - Deserie, The Continentals - Fine Fine Frame and many more classics waiting to be discovered! So if you want to Dip Into Doo Wop, this is the place to start with AVIDs Essential Doo Wop Collection, a finely re-mastered 2CD set for your consideration!"
