Street Corner Symphonies - Story of Doo Wop Vol 13 CD  

Street Corner Symphonies - Story of Doo Wop Vol 13 CD

Like Rap, Doo-Wop music was an urban American art-form. It was sung on street-corners, in stairwells of tenement apartments, in high school toilets... and it was preserved for posterity in recording studios. Most of the performers were African American, and many of the songs were romantic in sharp contrast to the bleak reality of urban African American life at the time. Doo-Wop had its origins in the black pop and gospel groups of the pre-World War II era, but it flourished in the years after World War II and became a major contributing force to the evolution of Rock 'n' Roll.
