AllMusic Review by

Explosive Doo Wops, Vol. 9 collects original vocal group performances, many of which are hard to come by. Among the 26 rarities are "There Is a Girl" by the Larks, "Lonely Weekend" by Billy & the Essentials, "Natalie" by the Dreamers, and "Keep Me from Crying" by the Windsors. The absence of liner notes is made up for by above-average sound quality, photos, and original release dates, making this series an excellent purchase for collectors. Passive doo wop listeners should stick with Golden Archive Series: Best of Doo Wop Uptempo and Golden Archive Series: Best of Doo Wop Ballads, both on Rhino.
