If you're a fan of authentic a cappella Doo-Wop, give the 5-man Encounters, brought to us by Collectables Records, a listen. First formed in Brooklyn, NY about 45 years ago, the group has gone through a number of permutations and personnel changes, singing a cappella from 1963 through 1969; adding a four-piece band and performing in clubs and at private affairs until 1979. In 1990, with the additions of Roy "Hutch" Hutchings on lead and Pete "Bolo" DeBenedetto on bass, they happily returned to pure a cappella. The rich bass tones of Bolo and the extraordinary falsetto leads of Hutch on these 10 cuts will show you why the Encounters are considered one of the elite Doo-Wop groups performing today. Some of our favorites are "Zoom, Zoom, Zoom," "When You Dance," "This Is My Love," "Get A Job," the title tune, "Spanish Harlem," "Life Is But A Dream," and "That's My Desire." Straight from a Brooklyn streetcorner to us, the Encounters have the good stuff, sweet, pure and authentic!
