I am a true doo-wop fan. I enjoyed the CD, especially Come Go WIth Me by the Del-Vikings. I have had the great experience of meeting many of the "ORIGINAL" members of the Fabulous 50's era. They truly laid the ground work for today's music. It is a shame that the true original members have to contend with these young artists using their name and music with no royalties. I thank you for selling the original sound (entertainers) of the Greatest Era of Rock 'n' Roll.

The Ultimate Doo Wop Collection is a two CD set that gives us a generous amount of the best of doo wop that was so popular in the 1950s and early 1960s. The sound quality is excellent and I like the diversity of artists.

The Capris start off the first album with their awesome ballad entitled "There's A Moon Out Tonight." I love this one and it always makes me feel sentimental. They harmonize perfectly, too. "Just To Be With You" by The Passions is another highlight of this set; they harmonize so well and the guitar arrangement is very impressive. Moreover, listen for "I Wonder Why" by Dion and The Belmonts. If you listen carefully you can hear Dion's voice just above the others; and his solo vocals are flawless. Great!

"Once In Awhile" by The Chimes is a stupendous, romantic ballad that will make you want to jump up and slow dance with your sweetheart practically wherever you are. "Rama Lama Ding Dong" by The Edsels is a very strong number that gets the royal treatment. This bouncy, energetic doo wop number is sure to please you if you haven't heard it before. The Edsels were quite a group!

"Deserie" by The Charts is one of the most beautiful love songs I've ever heard; and The Charts deliver this ballad with great sensitivity. The Dell Vikings end the first CD with their very famous "Come Go With Me." The harmonizing is great and the vocals lack nothing--they're incredible!

The second CD continues the hits. Clearly, The Five Satins score a huge goal with their performance of "In The Still Of The Night;" this romantic ballad always moves me with its natural beauty. "The Book Of Love" by The Monotones sounds great as always; and listen for "A Sunday Kind Of Love" by The Harptones. I really like the magical sound of The Harptones.

If you are a fan of group harmony and the great doo wop sounds of the 1950's and early 1960's then you really have to take matters into your own hands. For alas, these fabulous tunes have all but disappeared from the AM and FM radio dials. In most cities group harmony and doo wop music can only be heard 2 or 3 hours a week on specialty shows at odd times on smaller radio stations. Those of us who love this music pretty much have to fend for ourselves now. Collectables terrific 2000 2 disc release "Ultimate Doo Wop Collection" is a great way to start your very own collection of this fabulous musical genre.

"Ultimate Doo Wop Collection" features quite a few tunes that most folks are familiar with. Songs like the Dell Vikings "Come Go With Me", The Monotones "Book of Love" and Dion and the Belmonts "I Wonder Why" were staples on "oldies" radio stations. But there are dozens of great tunes in this collection that many folks may not be familiar with. Many of these songs were regional favorites and therefore were only minor hits or never appeared on the national charts at all. But that really does not matter. Listen up to the great vocal stylings of the Nutmegs "Story Untold" or the Harptones belting out "A Sunday Kind of Love". Enjoy once again Earl Lewis and the Channels "The Closer You Are" and the Charts sensational "Dance Girl". "Ultimate Doo Wop Collection" features great numbers by both black and white doo wop groups. You will find lively uptempo tunes and lovely ballads. Collectables has outdone itself with a great collection of these sounds that is sure to whet your appetite for more. The remastering job is first rate and the price is quite reasonable.

Highly recommended!

Shine up your saddle-shoes and break out those black leather jackets. If you are a fan of 50's doo wop music, this is the cd collection for you. From upbeat to soul searching, highlights for me include "Tell Me Why" by The Belmonts, "Whispering Bells" by The Dell Vikings, "In The Still Of The Night" by The Five Satins and "Book Of Love"by The Monotones. A very good way to get you in that fifties nostalgic mood.

While the title is a bit misleading this is one of the better Doo Wop compilations out there.

Its full of jams, some pretty rare.

I bought it blind and was glad I did because it contains The Students ' I'm So Young ' and The Pyramids ' Ankle Bracelet'. Each disc has twenty-five cuts each though neither is filled to capacity.

After archiving and copying it to a CD-R I was able to add The O'Jays 'Lonely Drifter', The Flamingoes ' A Kiss From Your Lips', The Coronets "White Cliffs Of Dover', The Sheppards 'Pretend You're Still Mine', The Moonglows ' Secret Love', and The Temptations 'Farewell My Love' to disc one, and Otis Williams & His Charms "Hearts Of Stone', The Dells ( I forgot their original name!) 'Nadine', The Impressions 'Your Precious Love'and a few others to make it more like a real "ultimate" Doo Wop collection/comp and to fill it all the way up.

I would've given it five stars but without 'Sea Of Love', 'Duke Of Earl', 'Teenager In Love' etc. its very close but not quite perfect or "ultimate".

It could however very well be considered a "must-have".
