Doo Wop: Vocal Group Greats (2005)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Release Date: Dec 06, 2005; Lead Performance: Various Artists; Genre: R&B

Doo Wop: Vocal Group Greats, a three-disc tie-in with PBS' Doo Wop Cavalcade can't touch 1994's The Doo Wop Box for historic tracks or liner notes, and can't do the twist like 2001's Rock, Rhythm and Doo Wop boxed set. But gems like Hank Ballard's coital cheerleading chant ''Work With Me Annie'' and the Platters' swoony ''Smoke Gets in Your Eyes'' make it a worthy public-TV pledge gift. Call now.
