The Best of Doo Wop, Vol. 7 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 "Tonite Tonite" by the Mello-Kings, "Whispering Bells" by the Del-Vikings, and "What's Wrong" by the Avalons.
