This deluxe wooden box set includes the 192 page book THEY ALL SANG ON THE CORNER, documenting the roots and history of street corner singing in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Harlem.
No pop genre has defined what a summer night can be as much as doo wop, with its countless songs about the moon and the stars and the light they cast on the possibilities of romance. This four-disc, 100-song collection has numerous examples, including "Twilight" by the Paragons, "A Star" by the Keynotes, "Dawn Is Almost Here" by the Cordials, "Summer Night" by the Chimes, "Evening Shadows Falling" by the Seniors, "Heavenly Night" by the Collegians, "Stars in the Sky" by the Channels, "Moonglow You Know" by the Videos, and "It Was a Night Like This" by the Turbans. The Encyclopedia of Doo Wop, Vol. 2 is a great collection of what people sing about when standing out under the stars. ~ Steve Leggett
