2-CD SET WITH SLIP CASE

55 ORIGINAL ALL-TIME CLASSICS

This splendid 2-CD edition presents the cream of the crop of doo wop – 55 tracks gathering a variety of sensational sides performed by the genre's most celebrated black, white, and interracial groups. These tracks were released on a number of different labels (mostly independent companies) during the heyday of the style between 1953 and 1962. The set is divided into uptempo tunes and ballads, with each section boasting smashes and all-time classics of the idiom. It also contains some lesser-heard numbers that are just as enjoyable as the hits. All of this material represents a formidable slice of American culture, and allows you to experience some of the finest gems from doo wop's golden era.
