VA - Rare Black Doo-Wop Sounds [2005-2007] (50 x CD's) PART 1 CD's 01-10

DOO WOP BONANZA

VA - Rare Black Doo-Wop Sounds [2005-2007] (50 x CD's)

Doo-wop (also spelled doowop and doo wop) is a genre of rhythm and blues music that originated among African-American youth in the 1940's, mainly in the large cities of the United States, including New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Baltimore, Newark, Detroit, and Washington, DC. It features vocal group harmony that carries an engaging melodic line to a simple beat with little or no instrumentation. Lyrics are simple, usually about love, sung by a lead vocal over background vocals, and often featuring, in the bridge, a melodramatically heartfelt recitative addressed to the beloved. Harmonic singing of nonsense syllables (such as “doo-wop”) is a common characteristic of these songs. Gaining popularity in the 1950's, doo-wop enjoyed its peak successes in the early 1960's, but continued to influence performers in other genres. (Wikipedia)

Here is a great collection of extremely rare doo-wop tunes from black artists/groups. There are 1490 tracks on 50 CD's and I am betting that there are hundreds of tracks you won't find anywhere else.The front cover indicates this was a limited production of only  200 CD's. The series started in 2005 (first 5 x CD's) and had 30 track per CD. By CD41 the tracks reduced to 28 per CD.  The entire series is a must for the serious doo-wop collector. 

These will be presented as 10 x CD's per week until completed. Enjoy!

    1. Hi g8rrick,

      You are welcome.
      I cant remember where I originally got these (years ago) but I suspect it was from the great Willard's Wormhole. It was a great site always great surprises.

      Cheers

    2. It could have been from Jake at Vocal Group Harmony. He posted them about 6 years ago. These comps are what got me started on doo-wop. The blog is still going but is now invite only.

    3. Thanks EasilyConfused.
      I wished I knew where these originally came from so I could mention it. I had a note on my files about albums posted at Willard's and found the Doo-Wop set mentioned but not all volumes. I always wondered if there were more volumes than the 50 I have.. Its such a great set.

      Cheers

      You may know that I posted many Doo-Wop sets at TZ (not this one) in the past, but this one is one of my favorites. (PS thanks for all you do also to promote Doo-Wop music at TZ.)
