Product Description

• Classic doo wop songs lovingly crafted into smooth late-night listening, for a mature audience, in Kenny’s inimitable style.

• During a long and varied career as a singer, songwriter and producer, Vance has worked with Donald Fagen and Walter Becker in their pre-Steely Dan days, been a long-time member of Jay And The Americans, and been involved in films and several solo albums. His latest involvement with Ace was in the "Legends Of Doo Wop" CD (CDCHD 824).

• Licensed from Kenny himself, this compilation takes tracks from several albums, including the OST of "Looking For An Echo", "Lover’s Island" and "Out Of This World".

• Includes four previously unreleased songs.

Format: Audio CD
I've always been a fan of U.S 60's group Jay and the Americans and through some research on YouTube I discovered that one of the founding members Kenny Vance is still around and releasing great music with his backing group The Planotones.This is why I bought "The Kenny Vance collection" through Amazon.24 classic doo wops songs from the 50's BUT sung in today's style and what a fantastic album.I have'nt stopped playing it since it arrived three weeks ago.The tracks that really stick out are "For your precious love" "Hushabye"recorded by Jay and the Americans way back in the 60's.The Drifters classic "This magic moment"gets a total modern makeover turning it into a slow ballad with piano and cello,definately a contender for the ultimate wedding day song when the bride and groom take to the floor for the first dance."The way you look tonight" has a Beethoven style intro.The Back Street Boys "It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday" is awesome and I could go on but I'm confined to 300 hundred words!!I almost forgot,"Looking for an echo" is a song about Kenny's teenage years singing doo wop in the school hall. Congrats. to Kenny and Johnny Gale for the production, and the Planotones for the excellent harmony,not forgetting the perfect match, YouTube and Amazon,One gives us a sample and the other gives us the goods.

Polished performance 7 April 2007
By D. Fritz - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you like Doo-Wop I highly recommend giving this cd a listen. They have a way of re-doo-ing, these songs that is really smooth. Close your eyes and let it take you back. The harmonies, the music itself, is top notch. If you've never heard Kenny Vance and the Planotones you owe yourself a listen. You won't be disappointed. I'm not an expert, but I have 2 cd's by them, and I am impressed.

One of the best 1 Jan 2008
By P. Romano - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I had the privilege of meeting Kenny Vance at a doo wop convention a couple of years ago. That is when I became a fan. I had a couple of his cds but just purchased this one recently. It has 24 songs which is pretty rare when it comes to cds. It's fabulous. Even though some of his songs are found on other cds I have, I still think this is my favorite.

FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 17 Sep 2007
By C. Gertz - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This CD is by far one of the BEST DOO WOP recordings I've ever heard and I LOVE IT. I'm surprised I haven't worn it out because it's the ONLY CD I've played in the last 3 weeks, over and over and over again, it's the best and Kenny V's voice is just amazing.........FABULOUS CD

I've been looking for a group playing oldies without sounding like Rockabillies and Kenny Vance delivers.
