London American Doo Wop 40 Original Recordings 1959 to 1961, DAT2CD163
There are 2 sets in this series and they are both great examples of "Doo Wop". The name Doo-Wop is given to a style of vocal based rhythm and blues music that developed in African American communities from the 1940s and achieved mainstream popularity in the 1950s and early 1960s. It emerged from various places including New York; Philadelphia; Chicago; Baltimore; Newark New Jersey; Pittsburgh; Cincinnati and parts of greater Los Angeles including El Monte and Compton. Built upon vocal harmony, doo-wop was one of the most mainstream, pop-oriented R&B styles of the time. As a musical style, Doo-wop is a form of vocal group harmony with many vocal parts, a beat, little or sometimes no instrumentation, music and lyrics. It is ensemble singing with single artists appearing with a backing group. Solo billing can imply that an individual is more prominent in the musical composition.
The second Doo Wop set kicks off with "Sixteen Candles" from 1958 and performed by "The Crests" They were a New York R&B Doo-Wop group of the late 1950s and early 1960s. Their most popular song was "16 Candles", which rose to number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1959. It sold over one million copies, earning a gold disc. "The Fiestas" were an R& Blues musical group from Newark, New Jersey. Organized in 1958 they contracted with Old Town Records company in 1959. Their debut single was 1959's "So Fine", written by Johnny Otis; the song was a hit in the U.S., reaching number 3 on the Black Singles chart and #11 on the Billboard Hot 100. CD1 tracks 4 & 7. "The Fireflies" were an American doo wop group from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

5.0 out of 5 stars When are the Originals not original? 13 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a very representative set of Doo Wop tracks from towards the end of that era indicated by the enhanced orchestrations which are frequently present. The sound quality on this set is bright and overall the package of two CD's is well presented.
The unusual feature of this set, given that it was published by a UK company, is that the recording of Angel Baby from Rosie and the Originals is not the UK release (London 45-HL-U 9266) from 1960. David M McKee, in his book, The London American Legend Vol 1, points to there being two different original versions, one for the US market, the other for the UK. I presume that the track here is the US version and so whilst adding an interest bonus for collectors, it is not the track which appeared on the London label in the UK.
All in all though a good choice of tracks and a great value package. Highly recommended.
