Product Description:

Liner Note Author: Ed Engel.
Collectables' series of doo wop compilations dedicates a CD each to a specific region, from Philadelphia to New Haven to California, but the most fruitful search for quality doo wop was directed toward New York City, and the label dutifully loaded up two volumes of Manhattan doo wop -- in addition to discs dedicated to the Bronx and Brooklyn -- for inclusion in the series. Beginning with the Harptones' stunning opening track on Manhattan Doo Wop, Vol. 1, it is clear that street-corner territory was something a vocal group had to earn in the Big Apple. Impressive singing fills the disc all the way to its conclusion, through 25 tracks in total, and another 25 tracks are featured on its sequel, Manhattan Doo Wop, Vol. 2, which is sure to make collectors of doo wop squeal with joy. The obvious time Collectibles put into compiling and mastering this series should attract listeners seeking to enjoy obscure groups whose recordings have only now broken into national availability. ~ Gregory McIntosh
