The Legends of the Rocking Dutchman - episode 26 (ALT)

Vocal blend

Much more than the instrumental R&B, the big band backed songs and the jump blues, the vocal group music of the fifties has remained popular with a large crowd of affecionados. Mostly labeled as doowop, this didn't just survive the Rock 'n Roll craze, it managed to blend in and become one of the mainstream music styles of the fifties and early sixties for the emerging teenage public. So this makes your play list today: a blend of vocal delight that's mainly from the fifties.
