Overview

Art Laboe is a legendary DJ who came to prominence in the '50s in Los Angeles playing doo wop and R&B. He became a promoter, club owner, and syndicated radio star. He also is a label proprietor with Original Sounds. The label's Dedicated to You series is made up of ballads, dance tracks, and classic sides from the '50s to the '90s. The wide range of songs makes for a sometimes disjointed listening experience as not all the segues between eras make sense. Still there is a lot of fine R&B, soul, girl group sounds, and funk that will make you want to dance and reminisce. The highlights of this volume are En Vogue's "My Lovin' (You're Never Gonna Get It)," Patti Drew's "Workin' On a Groovy Thing," the Flamingos' "I Only Have Eyes for You," and Timmy T.'s "One More Try." Just that brief list of songs should give you an idea of how broad the scope of the series is. It is certainly a wild ride that takes you from the doo wop of the Flamingos to the contemporary sounds of En Vogue, and credit goes to Laboe for making it a ride worth taking.
