Product Description:

Liner Note Author: Ed Engel.
Logically, the Penguins' legendary "Earth Angel" opens Collectables' California edition of their region-specific doo wop series, and while not every track stands up to the test of time as well, it is surprising how many of the obscure artists on this collection -- and indeed the entire series -- rank closely to the standard that continues to make "Earth Angel" strike such a chord in romantic hearts all over the world. As one might suspect, the doo wop that came out of California's scene is brighter than similar recordings made elsewhere; in fact, a case could be made that many of the specific recordings on California Doo Wop provided material that influenced the early Beach Boys. ~ Gregory McIntosh

California Doo Wop Music Lover: from Gainesville, FL US -- January, 25, 2007

I grew up in California in the 50's & 60's and remember most of these songs. It is a very nice collection of smooth doo wop songs with just a few songs away from being a perfect 5 star cd.

California Doo Wop Music Lover: from Sebring, OH US -- April, 7, 2006

I think this is one of the best oldies albums that I have heard for some time. Buy it.
