Fifty slabs of tear-stained wax; evocations of teen angst couched in the simple poetry of raw emotion. 37 of the sides make their debut here. Ace told the whole story of Ray Dobard's label on The Music City Story (ABOXCD 11) a 3CD set nominated for a Grammy for Alec Palao's sleeve notes. This 2CD set concentrates on the doo wop Dobard recorded from 1950 onwards. Frank Zappa described the doo wop on Cruisin With Ruben & The Jets as greasy love songs of cretin simplicity and he could almost be talking about the songs we present here. Extremely rare these singles would set you back a lot of money if you could find them offered for sale. This is a treasure trove for doo wop collectors you might recognise a few of the artists names, but they are probably not who you think they are... Compiled and annotated by Jim Dawson, West Coast doo wop aficionado and flatulence expert.
