Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Glen Sansone
This DVD packs all the sha-na-nas, dip-de-dip-dips, and shoo-bee-wops one could ever be expected to handle, thanks to an all-star cast featuring many of the most popular doo-wop artists ever recorded. A trip down memory lane in two volumes, it is a celebration doo-wop music's golden anniversary, recorded in Pittsburgh in May 1999, featuring glittery vocal performances by acts such as the Platters ("Only You") and Jimmy Beaumont and the Skyliners ("Since I Don't Have You"). Gene Chandler and Pure Gold's rousing rendition of the classic "Duke of Earl" stands out among several showstoppers. It's a must for any doo-wop fan or for anyone who wants to hold their sweetheart in their arms, close their eyes, and dance to imaginary starlight.
