5.0 out of 5 stars Doo-wop delights, 27 Dec 2013
If you're a doo-wop lover, this is by far the best of the bargain "one-label story" CDs now available. It includes a smattering of the familiar - Flamingos, Chantels, Little Anthony etc - plus plenty of seldom played rareties. It's particularly strong on ballads. If you haven't already got The Dreamlovers' "If I Should Lose You" in your collection, then it's worth shelling out on this CD for that track alone. Scarcely a dud among the 50 songs. A wonderful mixture of some of the very best doo-wop hits, plus others which deserved to be hits.

Ridiculously cheap price for a perfect mix of well-known and little-known tracks from the pop side of rock and roll. A compilation in which even the songs that weren't hits deserved to have been! Chancellor recordings always benefited from high-quality arrangements, so there are no duds.
Perfect for listening in the car and bringing back all those memories. Or as an introduction to the Golden Age of pop!

No, this is not highly-polished, glossily-produced Nina Simone, nor is it her ultra-ethnic persona, but for sheer from-the-heart no frills entertainment, this is hard to beat. It's impossible to resist singing along to the joyous and joyously short "Heaven Belongs to You" or to wallow in the maudlin interpretation of "Stars". Let's call some of the notes "interesting", rather than "wrong". The version of "My Baby Just Cares for Me" has an almost dirge-like quality and no-one's going to mistake it for the hit record. It's rough round the edges, in the same way as Jerry Lee Lewis's memorable live performances, but if that's how you like your music you… Read more
