Casey Kasem Presents: America's Top Ten - The 50's Doo-Wop Years Review

by Zac Johnson

Among the multitude of doo wop compilations out there, this set is certainly above average. Lesser-known tracks from the Four Preps, the Danleers, and the Poni-Tails nestle in amongst hits from the Chords, the Del-Vikings, and the Fleetwoods. While not as complete as Rhino's Street Corner Serenade: The Greatest Doo Wop of the '50s and '60s, Casey Kasem's collection is recommended for anyone who wants a good introduction to the sweet sounds of yesteryear.
