Street Corner Sinfonien
Die komplette Geschichte von Doo Wop
Jahrgang 13 - 1961

Die Gesangsgruppenszene war 1961 eine wahre Dichotomie.

Die raffinierte, mit Geige angereicherte Uptown-Seele revolutionierte das Genre dank The Drifters - bewährte Hitmaker, die den gesamten Satz mit ihrem lateinamerikanischen, crossover-schwerem Output anheizten - und frischen Schülern wie The Jarmels, Velvets, Corsairs und Crystals. Das war die Welle der Zukunft, ein Vorläufer einer Lawine von Soulmusik, die um die Ecke lauert. Andererseits war der klassische Doo-Wop-Ansatz nicht verblasst. Tatsächlich schien es so beliebt wie eh und je.

Neue Gruppen tauchten immer wieder auf, die Grenzen wurden phantasievoll erweitert. Fred Johnsons unsinnige, bodengewirrte Bass-Rants trieben The Marcels' Chart-topping Blue Moon voran, der innovative Ansatz der Gruppe belebte einen alten Pop-Klassiker wieder. Ebenso haben die Cleftones ihre Karriere neu gestartet, indem sie Heart And Soul, eine weitere verehrte Kastanie, neu erfunden haben. Der zerlegte Straßeneckensound, der lange Zeit das Sagen hatte, herrschte immer noch, nach Gene Chandler's Duke Of Earl (seine Dukays wurden nicht anerkannt) und herzzerreißenden Balladen wie The Pips' Every Beat Of My Heart, Die Dreamlovers' When We Get Heirate, The Jive Five's My True Story, The Spinners' That's What's What Girls Are Made For, The Chantels' Look In My Eyes, The Lark' It's Unglaublich, and Shep and The Limelites' Daddy's Home.

Dies ist zum großen Teil der immensen Popularität des Twist (sowohl des Tanzes als auch des Liedes) zu verdanken, einer Flut von abschlagenden Tanz-Trainings - The Vibrations' The Watusi, The Flares' Foot Stomping - Teil 1, The Rollers' The Continental Walk, The Dovells' Bristol Stomp - hielt die Füße der Jugendlichen in Bewegung. Die Integration war in der Gesangsgruppe gelungen: Die Tokens, Dovells, Regents, Dion mit den uncreditierten Del-Satins und Valadiers, allesamt kaukasische Überzeugungen, machten es unmöglich, Gruppen nach Rassen zu unterscheiden. Das letzte Outfit wurde an Motown verkauft, das Detroiter Label, das dank des Blockbusters Please Mr. Postman von The Marvelettes Dynamik entwickelt hat. The Temptations debütierte 1961 auch auf Wachs und richtete sich auf eine schöne kleine Karriere ein. 

Philadelphia, Chicago, Los Angeles, Cincinnati und New Orleans stellten ebenfalls wichtige Aufnahmen von Gesangsgruppen dar. Der Sound war nun lange genug gediehen, wo er seine eigene Art von Nostalgie erzeugte, Little Caesar und The Romans, die mit Those Oldies But Goodies (Remind Me Of You) rhapsodisch wurden. Eine ganze Generation von Jugendlichen wusste genau, wovon sie sangen.

Street Corner Symphonies

Like Rap, Doo-Wop music was an urban American art-form. It was sung on street-corners, in stairwells of tenement apartments, in high school toilets... and it was preserved for posterity in recording studios. Most of the performers were African American, and many of the songs were romantic – in sharp contrast to the bleak reality of urban African American life at the time. Doo- Wop had its origins in the black pop and gospel groups of the pre-World War II era, but it flourished in the years after World War II and became a major contributing force to the evolution of Rock 'n' Roll.

In fact, some eminent cultural historians cite re- cords like Sixty Minute Man and Gee as among the first Rock 'n' Roll records. Both of those classics, along with many more, are on BEAR FAMILY's defintive history of Doo-Wop, 'Street Corner Symphonies.' As always, you can trust BEAR FAMILY to get it right. Starting in 1939 with pre-Doo-Wop acts like the Golden Gate Quartet, the Ink Spots, and the Mills Brothers, 'Street Corner Sym- phonies' will take the story until the end of the Doo-Wop era in 1963. The first five volumes cover the years 1939 to 1953: in other words, Doo-Wop's true golden era. There are simply too many hits to list – just look at the track listing! Suffice to say that these were the records that provided the soundtrack to the Rock 'n' Roll revolution... and the records that changed American and global popular music forever.

This series has been compiled and annotated by R&B music's foremost scholar, Chicago's Bill Dahl, and every song comes with detailed notes and illustrations. There have been plenty of Doo-Wop compilations, even a few Doo-Wop boxed sets, but this se- ries is the last word on the genre. Truly definitive! Every hit, every underground classic, every song that lit up the airwaves at the dawn of rock 'n' roll. Every shoop, every doop, every doo-doo-wah!
