Description by OLDIES.com:
Twenty-five of the greatest hits from the best artists of the Doo Wop era are featured on this album, many available here for the first time on compact disc. All recordings have been digitally remastered from the original tapes.
Doo Wop 45s on CD, Vol. 7 is a single disc containing 25 original 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 ("Little Darling," "Smoke From Your Cigarette," and "Fountain of Love"), it's a treat to have access to songs by the Rocketones, the Crescents, and the Sheppards 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
