  1. Hi Joe. Fine selection. What I’ve always been curious about is what constitutes Doo-Wop and Rock n’ Roll. When I used to buy records back in the middle fifties when Haley etc came out, the expression Doo-Wop was’nt around, it was’nt until much later,that it came to be used, for instance I would never class “Why Do Fools” and fast rockers like it as Doo-Wop. But it seems to me that these days they’re all classed as one. Dont get me wrong, I love all those oldies that we never got to hear over here in the UK. With the advent of the compact disc and now the internet the choice is endless. But I’ m very glad I was there at the beginning. I would say that the first ‘rock’ record I bought was Earl Bostic’s “Flamingo” back in ’53, I would tune into the American Forces Network record programmes( the March Of Dimes) etc from Germany, and would hear records that either would never be issued over here, or would come out months later. Keep up the good work, Joe,you’ve got a great site. Best Wishes. Mike.

    • Hi Mike, That could be a really long answer…Doo-Wop is a music that has been around during the late 1940s through the early 1960s. The music brings innocence and raw feeling, than most types of music. It doesn’t make political points or give messages…its street corner sounds…that were expressed during that era. The music is basic it can be early R&B, Rock and Roll…both uptempo or slow…an excellent book on Doo-Wop music is the book “The Complete Book Of Doo-Wop” written by Gribin/Schiff. It is available through Collectables Music or Amazon.com. Thanks, Joe
