"Baby It's You", "Tell Me Why", "Lonely Room" - these are some of the greatest ballads recorded during the Doo Wop era and they're collected here with some more of the greatest sung songs of all time. Many of the artists associated with Harlem are included in this collection The Channels, The Continentals, The Starlites, The Avalons, The Dells are just a few among the many you'll hear on this 40 tracks 2-disc set.
The doo wop and early soul era was not just about jump and jive, but crooning love songs. A double-CD set with a whopping 40 tracks could not cover this time frame, but this collection does a decent job of presenting well-known groups and lesser vocal balladeers. The more familiar artists include the Spaniels, the Starlites, the Dells, and Lewis Lymon, and the Five Satins can be heard performing their all-time forevermore ballad "Our Anniversary." A trip down memory lane is in store for those of you who were teenagers in the '50s. ~ Michael G. Nastos
