Overview

Doo-Wop Forever, Vol. 2 collects 40 additional independent label doo wop recordings from the late '50s and early '60s, with what may be an even better selection than the first volume. Bona fide hits by the Edsels ("Rama Lama Ding Dong"), Maxine Brown ("All In My Mind"), and the Timetones ("In My Heart") sit alongside legendary non-hits such as Nino & the Ebb Tides' "Those Oldies but Goodies (Remind Me of You)," the Videos' "Trickle Trickle" (which the Dovells covered), and the Carnations' incredible novelty "Long Tall Girl." Other rarities include one of Nino & the Ebb Tides' finest recordings, "Franny Franny," and the Chalets' humorous "Fat, Fat, Fat Mom-Mi-O." The package contains a few tracks that are not doo wop, such as the aforementioned Maxine Brown hit, the Nightcaps' garage rock classic "Wine Wine Wine," and Scott English's "High on a Hill," but these few questionable inclusions don't mar an otherwise exemplary collection. The booklet includes notes about each of the selections by Victor Pearlin, which only could have been improved by conveniently listing the original labels and dates for the tracks (although that information is usually presented somewhere in the notes if you want to search for it). Two full discs' worth of vintage, rare doo wop for the price of one is a bargain for collectors.
