Doo Wop 45's on CD, Vol. 13 collects 25 hard to find tracks from the 1950s doo wop heyday on one disc. There aren't any liner notes to speak of, but the songs have been remastered from original tapes, giving the set a great clear sound. Highlights from this volume include rarely heard girl group doo wop (!) from the Hearts with "Lonely Nights," Earlene & Her Girlfriends with "Because of You," and a swinging take on Hank Williams' "Your Cheating Heart" by the Pearls. Strong ballads from the Keytones, Crests, Five Crowns, and Rivileers round out this volume. ~ Wade Kergan
