VARIOUS ARTISTS Champ 101 Heavy On Doo Wop, Vol. 1 ● CD $17.98
Another collection of doo-wop rarities from the 50s and early 60s. Most of the material is fairly pedestrian and the sound quality is very poor - sounds like a poor quality cassette player played behind a curtain. I know that these sides were often recorded in inferior studios and particularly rare records are often only found in poor condition but with some effort expended in remastering one can achieve a lot better than is accomplished here. Includes sides by Curtis Ware and The Four Do-Matics, The Dials, the Marksmen, Royal Demons, Note Makers, Alton & Eddy and others. Only for the most die-hard of die-hard doo wop fans.

VARIOUS ARTISTS City Sounds 101 Rare & Unreleased Group Harmony Gems, Vol. 1 ● CD $17.98
25 tracks, 60 min., recommended This new German label gets off to an auspicious start with a particularly strong pair of various artist discs. As the title indicates, the program is a mix of rare tracks and previously unreleased numbers, some demos. Highlights include Whenever I Get Lonely by the Contenders, The Way You Look Tonight by the Lonely Guys, More and More by the Love Larks, Never Let You Go by the Poets, the original demo of Twinkle Little Star by the Elegants (a bit slower, a cappella, and great), I Often Wonder by the Academics, Mr. Echo by the 4 Deans, Pretty Girl by the Golden Bells, and Are You an Angel by the El Venos. A fine mix of white and black doo-wop, laid down between 1957 and 1963, presented here with several nice group photos but no notes. (DH)

VARIOUS ARTISTS City Sounds 102 Rare & Unreleased Group Harmony Gems, Vol. 2 ● CD $17.98
24 tracks, 57 min., recommended Volume two in this new imported series matches volume one in quality, diversity, and graphic style. Tempos again are mixed, as is group ethnicity, and track dates range from 1957 to 1964. The program opens with This Love Was Real by the Showcases, Close to Me by the Marquees, Do It By Moonlight by the Eltones, Remember the Night by the Del Larks, Girl That I Love by the Academics, Nobody Can Love You by the Supremes (not the Motown girl group), Do-Re-Mi by Norman Fox and the Rob Roys, Never Let You Go by the Teenchords, Yum Yum Yum by the La Salles, Love Express by the Five Thrills, and Ding Dong Teenage Bells by the Five Secrets. Generally a solid play list from start to finish. I, for one, hope that City Sounds keeps up the effort. (DH)

VARIOUS ARTISTS City Sounds 103 Rare & Unreleased Group Harmony Gems, Vol. 3 ● CD $17.98

VARIOUS ARTISTS Crystal Ball 1044 The Hy-Tone Record Story ● CD $17.98
Fine collection of doo-wop and gospel recorded for Steve Samuels' New York based Hy-Tone label in the late 50s and 60s - many making their first appearance on CD. Includes The Corsairs, Lyrics, Hy Tones, Little Mack, Georgia Harris, Keith Davis and others. The three gospel cuts by Doug Williams & The Mell-O-Tones are particularly fine. Like quite a few recent doo-wop reissues this one shows excessive use of digital noise reduction on some tracks which results in a weird artificial sound. I think most collectors would prefer a bit of noise.
