Occasionally these ancient songs are heard in PBS's live concerts with original singers but they always sounded a little off, unlike this CD. Can you imagine your grandparents, parents or uncles doing their moves and sing along to these oldies? My favorites:

2. Silhouettes - The Diamonds
3. Come Softly To Me - The Fletwoods
4. Come Go With Me - The Dell-Vikings
7. Only You (And You Alone) - The Platters
9. A Teenager In Love - Dion And The Belmonts
10. 26 Miles (Santa Catalina) - The Four Preps
12. Born Too Late - Poni-Tails
13. There Goes My Baby - The Drifters
15. Little Star - The Elegants
16. Get A Job - The Silhouettes (watch these guys in "Videos.")
18. Lollipop - The Chordettes
19. Earth Angel - The Crew-Cuts
20. Book Of Love - The Monotones

Note: Wiki's definition -- Doo-wop features vocal group harmony, nonsense syllables, a simple beat, sometimes little or no instrumentation, and simple music and lyrics.

This album is so fun! I wanted to dance and sing along to all the oldies from this album, each one a gem. For some people, this may not be their thing, but for me this album was surprisingly fun and complete.
