Doo Wop CDs and Vinyl Records

The classical vocal groups showed Presens for the first time in 1920, but in 1948 one could really speak of a doo-wop band.


The polyphonic male songs pressed on LPs and singles seduced the women with their ballads and charm. Many put doo-wop CDs and vinyl records under rock and roll, but we at Bear Family see more of a relationship to rhythm and blues in the music. However, Doo Wop was influenced by Blues, Jazz and Gospel. Let's not argue about the genre in which you sort your vinyl records and CDs, but let's enjoy the unique feelings that the music expresses through its many octaves and lyrics.
 
Doo Wop CDs and vinyl records
To explore the complete history of the Doo Wop, we can recommend our self-produced CD album series Street Corner Symphonies. We have pressed the complete story with rare photos and recordings on CDs for you. Bear Family Records has also released the following albums in the Doo Wop genre: Doo Wop in Germany, Five Keys and Nitecaps - The Best Of Doo Wop Classics Vol.2, The Platters - The Ballads Of The Platters, Cadillacs - The Cadillacs Rocks, Frankie Lymon and The Teenagers - Frankie Rocks, The Cues - Why, The Cadillacs - The Josie Seesions and many more.
 
Of course you will also find releases from other record labels on vinyl records, e.g. singles with 45rpm or classical LPs with 33rpm, CDs and high-quality CD album box sets. Take a look at our doo-wop category and get the music in your favourite format, whether vinyl records like singles as 7inch, LPs as 12inch or simply on CDs.
