I have loved Doo Wop since I started collecting 50s Rock n Roll about 6 years ago. Through getting the `R&B hits of 195-` series on Indigo I became particularly attached to the laid back, sometimes mournful, sometimes playful, sometimes risqué style of this kind of music. These may have been the boy bands of the time, but the frisky and powerful deliverance of groups like the Clovers and the Dominoes were considered pretty shocking at the time. That power is slightly lost on this compilation as the sound quality is a bit lacking on the transfer to CD, but this is a cheap compilation so fair enough i suppose. Some tracks (but not many) are not the original (best) versions, for example, the Prisonaires 'walking in the rain', but a collector of rock n roll will find these versions elsewhere. There is no information to accompany the music, no dates, no photos, nothing! So i have only really fallen in love with this compilation since i have learned more about the music elsewhere. So not a collection for new comers to Doo Wop perhaps, but no other collection focuses quite so much on the 50s era. This is a really good showcase of the more mellow side of Doo Wop, with classics like Stars Are Out Tonight by The Teardrops, and A Thousand Stars by The Rivileers (magical), so anyone who is more interested in jump blues etc, try 'money honey' on Indigo, or 'golden age of rock n roll, doo wop special edition' on Ace.

Budget priced 3 CD set of doowop with less than 10 gaining U K release and around 15 charting at the time.
The newcomer to doowop would be advised to check out all the other collections available especially the ones on ACE.
Mainly this is unknown stuff

The Ultimate Doo Wop 3 CD box set of great vocal groups. A few standards such as "Sh-boom" The Chords, "Goodnight sweetheart" The Spaniels & "A Sunday kind of love" The Harptones, but a few other gems too, which makes this a collection worth buying.
