A Rarity!
Henrique Peirano | Brasilia, Brazil | 09/08/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For those who are passionate about Doo Wop or 50's music in general, this is a great find! This CD contains a live radio broadcast hosted by Alan Freed in 1956. Besides the Count Basie Orchestra, there are many singers/groups doing live performances. Here is the track listing:

Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers - Why Do Fools Fall In Love
The Drifters - Ruby Baby
Otis Williams and the Charms - Ivory Tower
The Cleftones - Little Girl of Mine
The Cadillacs - Speedo
The Chordettes - Mr. Sandman/Eddie My Love
Ivory Joe Hunter - I Almost Lost My Mind
Gene Vincent - Hound Dog
Gene Vincent - Bee Bop a Lula
LaVerne Baker - Tweedlee Dee
Etta James - Dance With Me Henry
The Platters - The Magic Touch
The Platters - My Prayer
Clyde McPhatter - The Treasure of Love
Chuck Berry - Maybeline
Chuck Berry - Roll Over Beethoven
The Penguins - Earth Angel
Bill Haley & The Comets - Rock Around The Clock

Please keep in mind that this was probably recorded from old 78 rpms, so some low scratch noises are common. But I assure you it's not something that will keep you from enjoying this CD."
