VARIOUS ARTISTS JSP JSPCD 7775 Vocal Groups - Classic Doo-Wop Remastered ● CD $28.98
JSP enters the vocal group stakes with this four CD set with 104 tracks presented chronologically. The first disc features the roots of the doo-wop sound covering recordings from 1932 through 1950 by The Three Keys, Mills Brothers, Ink Spots, Three Barons, Four Tunes, Melody Masters, Whispers, Three Riffs and more. The second disc highlights the transition from the older jump and pop style to a more R&B influenced style in the period 1951 through 1953 with tracks by The Royales, Cardinals, Mel-O-Dots, Marylanders, Five Sharps (their priceless Stormy Weather), The Hornets, Checkers, Du Droppers, Moonglows, etc. The final discs present the fully fledged doo-wop style with recordings from 1953 through 1955 by The Lamplighters, Crickets, Cookies, Chords, Teardrops, Robins, Topps, Eagles, Orchids, Five Royales, Marigolds, Hollywood Flames, Thunderbirds, Grady Chapman & The Suedes, The Hearts, Nutmegs, Kansas City Tomcats and more. Booklets have recording dates, personnel and brief notes by Neil Slaven. Diehard doo-wop fans will have everything here but this set provides a great introduction to this import musical genre. It's too bad that around 25% of the tracks are duplicated on the better produced Proper BOX 44 ("Dawn Of Doo-Wop" - $24.98) and BOX 79 ("Doo-Wop Delights"- $24.98). Still, between the three sets you can get a lot of great music at a very reasonable price.
