CD Reviews

The Channels represented the best NY Doo Wop
Alan Eiger | Dallas, GA USA | 07/05/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Hi I just had to respond to that guy from Canada, who doesn't think much of the Channels. You can name the record labels and a bunch of groups including obscure ones. So can I, ever hear of the Mistakes " I Lost My Job" Couldn't sing unless drunk. I'm 60 yrs old, grew up in Brooklyn NY and I can say The Channels were one of the best [my personal favorite] doo wop groups.. It's not how many you sold, many stations outside of NYC were not playing doo wop. They were playing the white guys of Phila. A lot of this doo wop was heard either on Alan Freed, or the black stations in NY. Dr. Jive, Jocko were playing strictly doo wop. The Channels were from Brooklyn also as were many of the groups. Back then it wasn't how many were sold it was in what areas. By the way The Flamingoes were from Chicago There were many fine groups back then, but the Channels alone epitomized New York City Doo Wop. Everyone tried to sing their songs."

Love Songs That Go Straight To The Heart....!

"Earl Lewis & The Channels aren't just New York's Finest...They are T-H-E-E-E Finest Ever....These Love Songs go right to the Heart of what relationships are really all about....Their first Hit, "The Closer You Are" makes me Fall In Love with my husband all over again...and again, and again. The Sweet, Harmonizing Melodies are the product of Real Musical Talent; and Classic Talent like this never goes out of style. "My Love Will Never Die" and "My Heart Is Sad" are Beautiful, Sensual Rhapsodies that Touch the Deepest Emotions in all of us....Mood Music Indeed! This Doo Wop Sound takes me back to a More Innocent Time when guys and girls Really Cared for each other.The 50's Music is Reminiscent of a time when The Pace of Life was Slower, Easygoing, and Love was Pure and Uncomplicated. This CD takes us out of the rat race and back to a Time When Love & Passion Were An Important Part of Our Lives... When Life was Less complicated, Less hurried, Less Demanding. A time when Kids Really Had Fun, without a lot of the pressures people have to worry about today...Earl Lewis & The Channels' Music is Happy, Pure, Innocent and Hopeful...Good For The Soul...#1 In My Book.This group is still performing (I saw them perform on TV, and they sound better than ever!) Do Yourself and your Sweetheart a Favor....Start Slow Dancing Again! ...I Highly Recommend this Soulful, Passionate CD to Everyone!"
