We gave it a B+

Rhino’s original backseat-music collection (1994) has gone gold, making it the reissue factory’s biggest-selling boxed set. This third installment, The Doo Wop Box III: 101 More Vocal Group Gems, combines still more hits (”There Goes My Baby”) and near misses (”Zoop”) with obscurities chosen by celebrity aficionados (George Carlin: partial to the Castelles). The last disc, an uneven sampling of latter-day curios (Manhattan Transfer, Stray Cats), can’t spoil the consistent charm of the first three. B+
