The Complete Story Of Doo Wop
Volume 10 - 1958

The term 'doo-wop' is bandied about much too freely as a catch-all phrase for every R&B vocal group that emerged during the 1950s, harking back to the early part of the decade. Impeccably polished aggregations such as The Orioles, Five Keys, and Flamingos simply don't qualify as doo-woppers (although New York deejay Gus Gossert is often credited with coining the term in the early '70s, The Bagdads cut Bring Back Those Doo-Wopps in 1968 for L.A.-based Double Shot Records).

The street corner-style harmonies that were seemingly everywhere in 1958 came a whole lot closer to defining the true doo-wop experience. Newcomers such as The Collegians, Crests, Videos, Fiestas, and Edsels were more likely influenced by the pioneering rock and roll groups than venerated elders such as The Drifters and Clovers. Girl groups, most notably The Shirelles and Quin-Tones, continued to knock down gender barriers, advancing their cause in the wake of The Chantels.

No longer was doo-wop the exclusive domain of African-American youth. 1958 saw a strong influx of young Caucasian groups who embraced the legitimate sound as closely as white on rice. The Elegants, Capris, Skyliners, and Dion and The Belmonts were all dedicated R&B fans, unlike the white pop cover groups that proliferated only a short time earlier - as a quick listen to any of their hits on this collection immediately underscores.

The kiddie sound that Frankie Lymon and The Teenagers introduced remained in vogue. Even if Frankie was no longer a hot commodity, The Students, Chanters, and Kodoks were happy to follow in his footsteps. And the humorous storylines that The Coasters found so much rock and roll success with (springing from the genius of writer/producers Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller) were being channeled by freshly minted groups such as The Olympics and Eugene Church & The Fellows.

The Drifters were struggling to remain relevant in the midst of constant personnel turnover, but The Moonglows, Midnighters, Flamingos, and Lee Andrews & The Hearts continued to score major hits. You could hear the roots of soul music in Jerry Butler & The Impressions' For Your Precious Love and James Brown & The Famous Flames' Try Me (I Need You). And a new crop of balladeers - The Fidelitys, Avalons, Danleers, Shields, Pastels, Valiants, Little Anthony and The Imperials - provided an intimate soundtrack for lovers.

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!
