Format: Audio CD
Founded by hustler Hy Weiss in 1952, Old Town Records is possibly most noted among fans or its doo wop output. No surprise then, there's a lot of that on offer over these 60 tracks. The Tremaines, Solitaires, Five Crowns (later, add Ben E King, that's a whole new story), Valentines, Gwen Edwards & Co'eds, Fi-Tones, Royaltones, Capris, Fiestas, Cleftones, Keytones, all eminently listenable, uptempo and otherwise. The Rogues start off well enough with "It's True", descending into a white-sounding, square, old school harmony group.

Plenty of r&b content, half pace "Good Rockin' Tonight" would've sounded better without the girlie chorus. Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee have four, all the better for the addition of small combo backing, Ursula Reed well worth a listen, as is Ruth McFadden (backed by The Supremes, Harptones and Royaltones). Pianist Bob Gaddy is solid, if a little derivative, Preston Brown stroll thru a nice organ, guitar and sax instro. Billy Bland is far from, great voice, whereas Gene Kennedy offers good enough teen pop and Larry Finnegan is more or less pure pop. Oddballs would include Vinny Lee & The Riders, throwaway instro workout on "Mule Train Rock", and Lou Dee & The Valley Boys get country with a hint of rockabilly. Mustn't forget The Fairfield Four, gospel, tremendous vocal workout on "Don't Let Nobody Turn You Around".

This works well as a sampler for the Old Town catalogue, much enjoyed. Of course, if you've got the five volumes of Old Town Doo Wop on Ace, they'll take a little shine off it.

Lots of music. But it's missing a lot of obvious hits. 28 Jun 2014
By markmarymnont - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This entire series from England, which features more than 60 overviews of various record labels in the States and England, has lots of music at a great price. But it's sometimes irritating when they leave off obvious hits from the period covered, and then add insult to injury by putting on the B-side but not the successful song. The sound on all of them is good and the liner notes are usually accurate, but it would be nice if they spent a little more time getting more hits and less filler on these things.
