AllMusic Review by

Encyclopedia of Doo Wop, Vol. 4 collects original vocal group performances, some of which are hard to come by, with very few artists receiving more than one track apiece. As with the first three volumes in this Collectables series, the absence of liner notes is counterbalanced by decent sound quality and 25 songs per disc. Even though the performances are great, this is really geared toward doo wop collectors. Passive listeners should stick with Golden Archive Series: Best of Doo Wop Uptempo or Golden Archive Series: Best of Doo Wop Ballads, both on Rhino.
