5.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to Doo Wop, 25 Jan 2011
This review is from: Essential Doo Wop - The Nutmegs Meet The Diamonds (Audio CD)
A good introduction to Doo Wop for anyone wanting to test the water. Sadly, not all Doo Wop is good Doo Wop and to spend a few quid on a CD, only to find it isn't all the 'Fashionable', high air play Doo Wop can be disappointing to say the least. Repetitive acapella can get boring after 20 tracks! This CD has a good mixture though. The Black group (Nutmegs)with it's non instrument singing and the White group (Diamonds)with it's bouncy, Chimes/Zylophone/Sax, commercial sound. One or two well known tracks, 'Words of Love' (Holly) and 'Why do fools'(Lymon) will keep you in your comfort zone. One or two 'humorous' tracks and a Risque one to boot ( she's my Zip Zip and she makes me flip, flip, flop)shows the White groups soon cottoned onto the early Black group's fun of double entendres, originally poking fun at the White audience, before the crossover, who had no idea. Added to this, there's 30 tracks in all, and why shouldn't there be? Each track at an average of two and half minutes makes you wonder why more expensive CD's stretch 20 tracks over two CD's other than to make it look a bargain? All in all a nice CD, in a cardboard sleeve with insert, and if you look carefully at Amazon marketplace sellers, you can get it for next to nothing. If you then decide Doo Wop isn't for you, give it to your Dad, he'll love it.
