The fifth installment in the Encyclopedia of Doo Wop series features one hundred doo wop gems, including rare and obscure finds, many appearing here on compact disc for the very first time. Also included is The Alan Freed Story - The Early Years of Rock & Roll by John A. Jackson, the (out-of-print) 400-page book about the Cleveland DJ who coined the term "Rock & Roll" and introduced the new genre to American airwaves. This wonderful 4-CD collection is packaged in a deluxe black-lacquered wooden storage case with a sliding panel front. The rare titles in this volume will satisfy even the most hard-core Doo Wop listener. DIGITALLY REMASTERED!

Encyclopedia of Doo Wop, V. 5 Music Lover: from REDONDO BEACH, CA US -- August, 28, 2015

I recently received this wonderful Doo Wop set and was very pleased by its contents. I grew up in the 60's mostly and had not heard much doo wop music. It is fun to hear The Chaperones with Shining Star for the first time, "I'll Pray for You" by the Del Satins and "Be Sure MY Love" by the Dubs. Also noteworthy is The Valentines with I love You Darling. Their backgrounds (instrumental) harmonizing with vocals are really superb in many cases.
