All tracks have been digitally remastered.
Doo Wop 45s on CD, Vol. 1 is a single disc containing 25 tracks that dig a little deeper into the genre and haven't been burned out from years of over-exposure. While a few well-known chart-toppers are included ("In the Still of the Night," "One Summer Night," and "Get a Job"), it's a treat to have access to songs by the Danleers, the Nutmegs, the Kodaks, and the Versatones that received regional attention but never achieved the national success initially hoped for. These tracks have been remastered from the original tapes, providing superior sound and giving the Doo Wop 45s on CD series that extra edge over similar compilations. ~ Al Campbell
