Doo Wop Christmas [Rhino]

All Music Guide
Although seven of the 18 tracks included here have appeared on other Rhino collections, any doo wop Christmas compilation would rightfully have to include The Orioles' otherworldly "It's Gonna Be A Lonely Christmas" -- cut in November of 1948, it is the earliest track present.

The Falcons' '57 "Can this Be Christmas" is nice to hear along with Frankie Lymon's "It's Christmas Once Again." The Echelons, a New York-area contemporary doo wop group, offer the catchy "A Christmas Long Ago Jingle, Jingle." Suitably, the CD closes with The Orioles' "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?" and The Heartbeats' "After New Year's Eve." ~ Dennis MacDonald, Roundup newsletter
