• The ROBINS - West Coast Doo Wop 1949-1961

Originally discovered and produced by Johnny Otis, The Robins were one of the first and certainly most influential of the teen orientated vocal groups to emerge from Los Angeles.

Contains all of their chart hits and notable recordings from 1949-1961 including the R&B No. 1 'Double crossing Blues' featuring Little Esther and 'If It's So Baby'.

This set sits nicely alongside Jasmine's Doo Wop Across America CD sets and is a must have for fans of the scene.

Fully detailed liner notes.
