This outstanding Collectables series, "Doo Wop As Seen On TV", features the original recordings of those great groups that appeared on the popular PBS television series. Highlights: The Harptones' "Sunday Kind Of Love", The Channels' "The Closer You Are" and The Penquins' "Earth Angel".
This is the seventh volume in Collectables' Doo Wop as Seen on TV series, each of which is a brief ten-song sampler of vintage doo wop singles (it's hard to say what television has to do with any of this). Too short to be much more than a budget loss leader, this installment features the Penguins' classic "Earth Angel" and the Del Vikings' bouncy and jaunty "Whispering Bells," among other hits. Serious fans of the genre will already have everything here, and the short running time makes this a low priority purchase even for novice listeners. The music is fine, but there's just not much of it. ~ Steve Leggett
