Album Notes and Credits


Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote THE DOO WOP BOX set contains 101 tracks featuring doo wop acts from the 1940s to the 1980s. It includes liner notes by Bob Hyde, Donn Fileti, and Billy Vera.
Muze PNote For fans of this urban folk music, there are no limits to what they'll do, where they'll go or what they'll spend to score a classic single or a long out-of-print LP. And with the release of the 4-CD THE DOO WOP BOX, the anthologists at Rhino have exceeded their own daunting standards. This definitive collection glorifies this classic art form and re-connects it to both its roots in gospel and its antecedents in R&B, soul, funk and jazz. But as the annotators demonstrate on these four brilliantly sequenced volumes, the evolution of doo wop--vocal group music--is synonymous with the birth of R&B itself, and parallels the rise of rock and roll teen culture.
Muze PNote More to the point, THE DOO WOP BOX's historical booklet is laid out and written with such incredible devotion, that in no time at all these 101 songs come to feel like old friends: Earl "Speedo" Carroll's celestial falsetto on "Gloria;" Willie Winfield's pleading tenor on "A Sunday Kind Of Love;" the supremely greasy "Teenager In Love" by Dino & The Belmonts...
Muze PNote Wait. All these songs are already old friends if you live anywhere near a pizza parlor or an oldies station. For the rest, Rhino's producers have decoded the mystery and filled in the blanks--so all you have to do is roll back the rug and dance, or kick back, listen and learn.

Producer: Bob Hyde; Walter Devenne

Rolling Stone (7/14/94, p.108)
- 5 Stars - Classic - "...What's here is choice--obvious but choice nonetheless in all its wild romanticism and boundless optimism...a message of hope resounds in simple sentiments from decades past..."
