5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Doo Wop Collection 23 Aug 2005
By Hardyboys.us - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Old Town Doo Wop, Vol. 1 offers up some Doo Wop hits along with many rarities including some previously unreleased tunes from the archives of Hy Weiss' legendary Old Town label.
The recordings are the originals and the sound quality is just fine.
The accompanying booklet has short but satisfactory liner notes about the songs and groups.
All in all a great addition to the collection of any Doo Wop fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Bonnevilles!! 22 Oct 2009
By Music4Me - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD has a fine selection overall but the two songs by The Bonnevilles ("Zu-Zu" & "Lorraine") are prime examples of lost classics. For these tunes alone, it's worth a purchase.
4.0 out of 5 stars I really found I don't care for DoWop 7 Jan 2014
By Jacqueline F. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The CD itself was wonderful; except I left the DoWop group that I joined on Facebook. I haven't heard it
in many years, and my music tastes aren't the same.

4.0 out of 5 stars When Doo Wop Bopped-An Encore 21 April 2010
By Alfred Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have been doing a series of commentaries elsewhere on another site on my coming of political age in the early 1960s, but now when I am writing about musical influences I am just speaking of my coming of age, period, which was not necessarily the same thing. No question those of us who came of age in the 1950s are truly children of rock and roll. We were there, whether we appreciated it or not at the time, when the first, sputtering, moves away from ballady show tunes, rhymey Tin Pan Alley tunes and, most importantly, any and all music that your parents might have approved of, even liked, or at least left you alone to play in peace up in your room hit post World War II America like, well, like an atomic bomb.

Now strictly speaking "Doo Wop" is not really rock and roll, but rather a second cousin to it coming out of the black-dominated rhythm and blues tradition. The fantastic harmonics, precise rhythmic patterns, and smooth lyrics reflect that tradition more than the over-heated, guitar-driven, solo-singer rock performances that drove most of us to the dance floor back in the day. The kind of rock and roll that most of us children of the genre listened to, went wild over and spent that precious disposable income on was the rockabilly, hillbilly, black country blues variation that Sam Phillips and Sun Records first produced in the early 1950s and that Elvis, Carl Perkins, Chuck Berry, and Jerry Lee Lewis came to be exemplars of. But some of us, when we had a little extra cash, definitely bopped "doo wop" as part of our coming of age, especially if some dreamy girl (or guy for shes) was falling all over herself to listen to. Remember to be young was to be ready.

So what still sounds good on this CD compilation to a current AARPer and some of his fellows who comprise the demographic that such 1950s compilations "speak" to. No one came out of the 1950s without having at least listened to "There's A Moon Out Tonight" by the Capris. Or "Remember Then" by The Earls, "Message Of Love" by The Laurels, and "Walking Alone" by The Solitaires. Now this sub-genre is a very acquired taste, to be sure, but if you need a "doo wop" primer here is a place to start.
