Details: More than 100 of the finest rhythm & blues and rock 'n' roll doo-wop songs ever recorded, all remastered from the original session and master tapes (many for the first time!). Besides containing nearly every doo-wop record ever to hit the pop charts from 1948 to 1981 ( Why Do Fools Fall in Love; Earth Angel; In the Still of the Night; My Prayer; Little Star , and many more), the set offers a number of rarities and previously obscure gems that add "flavor" to the collection. Completing the package is a thick, intensely detailed color booklet.The unwritten rules for doo-wop groups were deceptively simple: name your group after a bird (the Wrens, the Flamingos) or a car (the Cadillacs, the El Dorados), practice your two-, three-, or four-part harmonies on a neighborhood street corner or in the back of a candy store, and sing songs about how much you love your baby. It might have seemed like an obvious formula, but getting it just right was never easy. When it worked, that formula created some of the most joyful and unforgettable music of the 20th century. From the Orioles ("It's Too Soon to Know") to Frankie Lymon & the Teenagers ("I Want You to Be My Girl"), this four-CD collection is without a doubt the definitive introduction to the rock & roll vocal music of the 1950s and early '60s. --Percy Keegan
