"A Million Dollars Worth of Doo-Wop" At last count there were 20 volumes plus a Christmas disc, and not one song in rotation on an Oldies station. (artist/track list here) The above mentioned Fortune Records comps may wander out of the genre occasionally but that's half the fun - essential listening, Doo-Wop or not (a friend of mine, upon first exposure to an evening of Fortune sides decided it was the sound "of recording equipment in the hands of the criminally insane")

The Doo Wop Box that Rhino put out in 1993 is superb and a great place to start. With a few exceptions, most of the classics are here.

Then get the sequel The Doo Wop Box II. This came out in 1996 and has a lot of lesser known but still great tunes. In fact its better than the first box.

Do you love the 1950s/early 60s doo wop recordings?

We have all heard the Top 100, 200, 300 most popular doo wop recordings hundreds of times. But did you know there are thousands of original doo wop recordings that got virtually no airplay? Would you like to hear original doo wop recordings that you never heard before?

If so, please contact me at conklinwj@aol.com. You will not be disappointed. I've been collecting for over 50 years with a focus on these original "lost doo wop recordings".

I have organized my collection of rare doo wop recordings on a series of CDs (24 songs per CD) that I share with other serious collectors. Again, please contact me at conklinwj@aol.com if interested.

"CRASHING THE PARTY blows a hole into any preconceived notions of Doo-Wop - original vocal group music - twice a week, in two hour episodes, on two different stations, available worldwide and beyond via our CTP 24/7 audio archive. Hosts Marc and Miriam trade rarities and obscurities from their respective collections of shellac in unscripted wild rides that are sure to surprise, amuse, and excite the heck out of listeners.

The show pulls from music from the soaring sounds of the 1940's to the wilder sounds of the early 1960s. It's no nostalgia trip, and although uncommon and unknown records are the focus, there is also a celebration of the key records which impacted the rhythm and blues charts and forged a path into radio and the general population. The idea is to show off a largely misrepresented and misunderstood, double decade era that produced countless records on labels large and small, and which was a pivot point to many new sounds for many generations of vocal group fans.

CRASHING THE PARTY also has an immediate focus on the back story - the originators in the world of record collecting who elevated their passion for rock n' roll of the vocal group persuasion into lifelong endeavors. First-time interviews with the the collector gods who were the earliest to find the artists, labels, and records themselves, and who shared their knowledge through the years now tell their own stories - how they got hooked on the sound, and where that love for vocal group sounds has taken them"
