Description by OLDIES.com:
Doo Wop music had its heyday in the '50s - this volume of great Doo Wop music brings back the tight harmonies and the music you love. Fourteen tracks, groups highlighted include The Del Knights, The Capris, The Silhouettes, and The Scarlets.
A cheap and rather unrepresentative look at the doo-wop era, Collectables' three-volume Great Groups of the Fifties series contains 14 songs (two of which were "previously unreleased") on each disc. As far as slapped-together overviews are considered, you could do a lot better, but the budget pricing makes them attractive to those who only want a beginner's sampling. The second volume features the Spaniels' "The Bells Ring Out," the Videos' "Moonglow You Know," the El Dorados' "At My Front Door," the Silhouettes' "Get a Job," the Five Satins' "To the Aisle," and the Baltineers' "Tears in My Eyes." The two "previously unreleased" tracks here are the Capris' "Milk and Gin" and the Skylarks' "Never Let Her Go." ~ Andy Kellman
