A four-disc, 100-track box set of vintage doo wop sides, Proper's Doo Wop Delights comes packed with more bird references than your basic ornithology text book, featuring hits from the Orioles, Cardinals, Flamingos, Blue Jays, Crows, Swallows, Ravens, Larks, Hawks, Meadowlarks and Robins, as well as timeless releases from groups with names that sound like they could be birds but aren't like the Harptones, the Du Droppers and the Blue Notes. Drawn from an era when every street corner in America seemingly had at least two or three vocal harmony groups practicing their craft, this set manages to feel definitive without being academic and is indeed, as the title suggests, a delight.
