No pop genre has defined what a summer night can be as much as doo wop, with its countless songs about the moon and the stars and the light they cast on the possibilities of romance, and no pop genre has ever had more earthly angels residing per square foot.

One had no idea that there were so many angels in New York, or that the night stars were even visible there, for that matter. Also includes a 400-page biography of legendary DJ Alan Freed written by John A. Jackson, which somewhat makes up for the lack of any kind of liner notes.
