Street Corner Symphonies
The Complete Story of Doo Wop
Volume 1 - 1939-1949

The roots of the 1950s rhythm and blues vocal group explosion were buried deep in a previous generation of African-American harmonizers that paved the way for what's now termed doo-wop. The Ink Spots, Mills Brothers, and Golden Gate Quartet were three of the most influential pre-war black groups, their network radio broadcasts embraced by countless listeners nationwide; their pop-slanted recordings sold very well too. By the mid-1940s, they had plenty of competition on both coasts and across the U.S. This vocal group movement was overwhelmingly urban in scope; quartets in the hinterlands tended to stick to gospel pursuits.

Many groups of the pre-war generation started out singing spirituals, eventually crossing over to the secular side to broaden their commercial potential and gain more radio and record exposure. A few—The Southern Sons/Melody Masters, The Trumpeteers/Four Rockets--recorded both sacred and secular material under different names, apparently recognizing no conflict between the two worlds. The Golden Gate Quartet's pioneering efforts embraced both genres at the same time without any name changes at all (they were prime motivators in the rhythmically syncopated 'jubilee' style of gospel singing).

With few exceptions, pop song publishers didn't save their best new material for black groups, meaning the groups either had to reinvent older repertoire, or write their own songs. The Cats and The Fiddle, The Big Three Trio, and The Four Aces were self-contained units, playing their own instruments behind carefully honed vocal harmonies. If a group only sang, an accompanying pianist or guitarist was a must.

The post-war emergence of The Ravens and The Orioles signaled the next step in the idiom's development. Their revolutionary platters were aimed at a younger generation; Orioles lead tenor Sonny Til was the genre's first matinee idol, appealing to teenaged African-American girls in a way that The Ink Spots' Bill Kenny and various Mills siblings never did. Though hipper whites were no doubt aware of them, The Ravens and Orioles made limited concessions to the pop world; they weren't radio stars and relied on record sales to fuel their popularity. Their mammoth impact inspired hundreds of promising young groups to gather under the nearest corner street lamp and harmonize on their latest hit songs.

This collection provides a primer on the most important groups and recordings of the 1940s. Without these pioneers, it's hard to imagine The Dominoes and Clovers shaking up the R&B scene so forcefully at the dawn of the 1950s. The die had already been cast.

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!
