Product description

Product Description

cultural historians cite records like Sixty Minute Man and Gee as among the first Rock 'n' Roll records. Both of those classics, along with many more, are on BEAR FAMILY's defintive history of Doo-Wop, 'Street Corner Symphonies.' As always, you can trust BEAR FAMILY to get it right. Starting in 1939 with pre-Doo-Wop acts like the Golden Gate Quartet, the Ink Spots, and the Mills Brothers, 'Street Corner Symphonies' will take the story until the end of the Doo-Wop era in 1963. The first five volumes cover the years 1939 to 1953: in other words, Doo-Wop's true golden era. There are simply too many hits to list just look at the track listing! Suffice to say that these were the records that provided the soundtrack to the Rock 'n' Roll revolution ... and the records that changed American and global popular music forever. This series has been compiled and annotated by R&B music's foremost scholar, Chicago's Bill Dahl, and every song comes with detailed notes and illustrations. There have been plenty of Doo-Wop compilations, even a few Doo-Wop boxed sets, but this series is the last word on the genre. Truly definitive! Every hit, every underground classic, every song that lit up the airwaves at the dawn of Rock 'n' Roll. Every shoop, every doop, every doo-doo-wah! The Dominoes: Have Mercy Baby - The Cardinals: The Wheel Of Fortune - The Vocaleers: Be True - The '5' Royales with Charlie Ferguson - His Tenor and Orchestra: Baby Don't Do It - Billy Bunn and His Buddies: That's When Your Heartaches Begin - The Clovers: One Mint Julep - The Serenaders: But I Forgive You - The Royals: Every Beat Of My Heart - The Ravens: Rock Me All Night Long - The Larks featuring Eugene Mumford: Hold Me - The Four Knights: That's The Way It's Gonna Be - The Swallows: Beside You - The Four Buddies: You're Part Of Me - The Orioles with Buddy Lucas Orchestra: Don't Cry Baby - The Four Tunes: Let's Give Love Another Chance - The Four Jacks: The Last Of The Good Rocking Men - The Marylanders with Buddy Lucas and His Band of Tomorrow: Make Me Thrill Again - The Four Blazes: Rug Cutter - The Sultans: Don't Be Angry - The Diamonds: A Beggar For Your Kisses - The Du-Droppers with Ben Smith's Quintet: Can't Do Sixty No More - The Enchanters: I've Lost - The Checkers: Flame In My Heart - The Five Keys: Serve Another Round - The Mel-O-Dots featuring Ricky Wells: One More Time - The Five Crowns: You're My Inspiration - The Heartbreakers: Rockin' Daddy-O - The Four Flames: Later - The Dominoes: That's What You're Doing To Me - The Five Sharps: Stormy Weather - The Clovers: Ting-A-Ling
