Street Corner Symphonies
The Complete Story Of Doo Wop
Volume 8 - 1956

If this collection sounds like it rocks a little harder than its predecessors in this series, it's no misconception. The first flowering of rock and roll was in full bloom during 1956, and R&B vocal groups followed the trend, their waxings enriched by scorching sax solos and storming tempos.

There were plenty of familiar names riding the airwaves. The Drifters had survived the loss of Clyde McPhatter quite nicely, sharing the upper reaches of the R&B hit parade with their labelmates The Clovers as well as other proven hitmakers such as The Spaniels, Moonglows, and Platters. But the great majority of groups populating this disc are first-timers, testifying to the continuous turnover in popular aggregations during the early days of rock and roll. The Ravens and Orioles were still cutting platters, but precious few teenagers cared.

The Coasters were making their first hits under the savvy eye of producer/writers Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. So were several Chicago groups, notably The Dells, Magnificents, and Flamingos. L.A. was represented by The Cadets (actually a ringer; they'd scored the previous year as The Jacks) and Jaguars. But as always, New York churned out more new groups per square mile than any other city. The Channels, Willows, Heartbeats, Bop-Chords, Pretenders, Cookies, and plenty more made classic platters in 1956, joining recently crowned stars Frankie Lymon and The Teenagers on the highly competitive Gotham scene. The Teenagers were extremely influential, thanks to Lymon's 'kiddie lead' sound. Frankie's little brother Lewis started his own Teenchords, and Jimmy Castor's Juniors plowed much the same ground - and they were only the tip of the iceberg.

Of all the seminal group recordings released in '56, perhaps the most enduring wasn't done in a studio at all. The Five Satins' immortal ballad In The Still Of The Nite was taped in a chilly church basement in New Haven, Connecticut, its sonic limitations more than offset by the timeless yearning in Fred Parris' lead vocal. James Brown and The Famous Flames offered vivid insight into the future of the vocal group genre with their intense debut single, the gut-wrenching Please, Please, Please. Like The '5' Royales and Ray Charles before him and countless acts to follow, Brown presaged the rise of soul, his Famous Flames' rough-hewn harmonies more in line with Southern gospel quartets than the polished doo-woppers on the East Coast.

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!
