The Best of Doo Wop, Vol. 5 Review

by John Bush

Like others in Collectables' The Best of Doo Wop series, this volume includes a parade of doo wop classics, but an unaccountably brief running time (there are only ten tracks). This may fool a few older listeners, unaware that the CD medium allows more than twice that amount of material or simply content with its 25-minute length, but unless it's available for under five dollars, the collection simply isn't worth the price. Among the inclusions fitting the bill for entry are "There's a Moon Out Tonight" by the Capris, "Trickle Trickle" by the Videos, and "Stay" by Maurice Williams & the Zodiacs.
