Editorial Reviews

Considering this 2-CD set was put together by a lot of the same guys who created Rhino's Doo Wop Box , the title might be right! There sure is no doubt that all 37 tracks here are peak vocal group performances, cross-licensed from everywhere: Why Do Fools Fall in Love Frankie Lymon & the Teenagers; A Teenager in Love Dion & the Belmonts; 16 Candles Crests; Since I Don't Have You Skyliners; Earth Angel Penguins; Little Darlin' Diamonds; The Great Pretender Platters; In the Still of the Nite Five Satins; I Only Have Eyes for You Flamingos; Speedoo Cadillacs; Little Star Elegants; Sincerely Moonglows; Get a Job Silhouettes; Blue Moon Marcels; Denise Randy & the Rainbows; Island of Love Sheppards; Rama Lama Ding Dong Edsels; I Do Marvelows; There's a Moon Out Tonight Capris; So Fine Fiestas; Unchained Melody Vito & the Salutations; When You Dance Turbans; My True Story Jive Five; Daddy's Home Shep & the Limelites, and more.

Great Collection all on two CD's.

It has lots of really good doo-woop favorites and brings back fond memories of a "gentler" time in music.

This two-CD collection of doo wop classics from 1954's "Goodnite Sweetheart" through 1963's "Denise" does a first-rate job of hitting most of the highlights of that glorious pre-British Invasion period in American popular music. Essentially what this is is a condensed version of Rhino's superb 1993 101-track THE DOO WOP BOX. [Note: there are seven tracks here that are not found on Rhino's box set, but "Duke of Earl" is the only real gem among them.] Since this collection focuses on the hits, it's no surprise that they include the version of "Little Darlin'" by the Canadian vocal group The Diamonds and not the original recording by the Gladiolas, whose version peaked at No. 41 on the pop charts earlier in the year. But overall, this is an excellent primer and will make an excellent addition to you music library. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

What a fantastic couple of CDs!!! If you're wondering what doo-wop was all about, this is the CD to buy. If you're looking for something that doesn't feature a lot of filler on it like so many sets of doo-wop songs do, this is the CD to buy. CD one clocks in at 45+ minutes with CD 2 coming in at 47+ minutes. It wouldn't have bothered me if they had included a couple of more genuinely classic songs on there, but hey, I'm not complaining. Listening to these 2 CDs is pure enjoyment from the beginning to the end. Only one flaw and that is that "Little Darlin'" listed by the Diamonds most definitely isn't the Diamonds (who did it much better than the group which is represented).

I doubt if this is the definitive Doo-Wop collection as implied by the title, but it is excellent. For a long time I have had a craving to buy a boxed set of Doo-Wop, but the $70+ was just too rich for my blood. This is great feel-good music at a feel-good price.

While the sound quality on these disks is excellent, be aware that app. 50% of the tunes are not the originals. Shout Factory should be ashamed, duping customers like this. Rhino Records would never pull such a stunt. Go for the 4-disk Rhino box set (Vol. One) instead. You can find many high quality used versions for sale all over the web, too.

The Only Doo-Wop Collection You'll Ever Need is an amazing two CD set of fantastic doo wop hits from almost all the biggest doo wop stars of the day. The sound is quite good and I like the artwork that comes with the CD.

"Why Do Fools Fall In Love" by The Teenagers, featuring Frankie Lymon starts the CD off strong; they sing and harmonize very well and the musical arrangement shines like gold! I love it! Frankie never misses a note; and that horn solo beats anything for sure! The Dell Vikings also perform their hit entitled "Come Go With Me;" this peppy little ballad sounds as great as it ever did! They harmonize well and they handle the tempo changes effortlessly. The Five Satins sing their slow dance "In The Still Of The Night;" and I really like "Since I Don't Have You" by The Skyliners. Man, how they do this up right! I predict that you will enjoy "Since I Don't Have You."

The Crests continue the hits with "16 Candles;" this touching ballad is one of the greatest doo wop tunes I've heard--ever. It's THAT good. "Get A Job" is a tune both playful and somewhat serious by The Silhouettes; they deliver this like true professionals.

The second CD has many more great songs on it. Listen for Dion & The Belmonts as they lament the uneasiness of being "A Teenager In Love." The Flamingos perform their touching melody entitled "I Only Have Eyes For You;" I really like this number. The Duprees perform a moving rendition of "You Belong To Me," too.

Gene Chandler sings his classic "Duke Of Earl;" Gene never sounded better and this ballad still sounds great today. The two CD set ends with the very sentimental "Those Oldies But Goodies (Remind Me Of You)" by Little Caesar & The Romans.

This is not the only collection you will ever need. For about the same price you can get Rhino's "The Doo Wop Box#1"used and to really extend your collection Box #2 is a must (forget about #3 as things start getting sloppy).

Someone at "Shout Factory" was not doing his or her homework when they set the wrong artist with certain songs,mayby they thought no one would no the difference after it was proof read. Sorry - they made a big mistake and I won't make the mistake of buying this half-baked set!

"Enjoy" JFK

I was a teen in the 50's and grew up with this music. The two disks contain many of the best of this period and is well recorded. If you want an inexpensive collection that includes some of the best, this is it. I listen in the car and can't help singing along. I also own Slow Dancing Disk 1 and Disk 2 which are on the Warner Special Products label and recommend them highly if you want more great music from the 50's and 60's.
