Street Corner Symphonies
The Complete Story of Doo Wop
Volume 3 - 1951

The old guard continued to steadily lose ground within the black vocal group firmament in 1951. The Mills Brothers, Ink Spots, and Delta Rhythm Boys were fast receding into the history books as guaranteed hitmakers, their once-groundbreaking sounds growing increasingly dated. Some veteran outfits such as Steve Gibson and The Red Caps gravitated in a more overtly R&B-oriented direction. Even The Ravens and Orioles, the two hottest groups of the immediate postwar era, had cooled off considerably; neither cracked the R&B charts the entire year despite releasing nothing but quality releases in both cases.

The next wave of younger groups - many profoundly influenced by The Ravens and Orioles - began to make their presence felt in no uncertain terms. The Clovers got noticeably bluesier after they signed with Atlantic, scoring two consecutive number one R&B smashes. Their labelmates, The Cardinals, hit big their first time out, as did The Four Buddies and The Swallows. It took The Five Keys all of two releases to crack the bigtime. Intriguingly, all of those groups hailed from Washington D.C., Baltimore, or Virginia, reminding us just how East Coast-centric the burgeoning vocal group movement remained. A handful of important groups - The Hollywood Flames, The Robins - were based in Los Angeles, but New York remained ground zero when it came to recording black vocal aggregations.

Having hit the R&B arena with a seismic impact the previous year thanks to his gospel-drenched vocal delivery, Clyde McPhatter continued to alter the concept of the secular group sound with The Dominoes in 1951, though his fellow Domino, bass singer Bill Brown, was out front on their gargantuan smash Sixty-Minute Man. The Royals - soon renamed The "5" Royales - took the sanctified approach one step further: the entire aggregation sounded like they were in standing in church despite the decidedly non-religious lyrics of their first R&B release, Give Me One More Chance. Like several other groups on this collection, they hailed from the Carolinas, where the spiritual influence seemed to run bone-deep (The Larks also had roots there).

Most of these newly emerging groups would continue to score hits as the decade progressed.

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!

Die Aufmachung der CDs ist, wie von Bear Family nicht anders zu erwarten, natürlich vorzüglich! Die Silberlinge sind randvoll, und die Liner Notes von Bill Dahl sind von nicht zu übertreffender Akkuratesse und Detailfülle.
