• Various Artists - Doo Wop - The Greatest Hits 1961-1962

Due to the success of the first two volumes (JASCD507 & JASCD169) comes the third and final addition to the 'Doo Wop Greatest Hits' series, this time focusing on the years 1961 to 1962.

A stonking 60 track extravaganza with every track, yes EVERY single track making an appearance on the US pop charts!

If you like doo wop, you'll love this!

This collection and the two previous volumes have highlighted the most commercially popular examples of the genre but if you want to explore further, within the Jasmine catalogue you will find numerous collections dedicated to many of the greatest African American R&B groups from the 1930s to the 1960s alongside many examples of Italian American vocal groups. Enjoy.
