Twenty-eight tracks from Chicago's El Dorados, who won a record contract with Vee-Jay after winning a competition against Vee-Jay's own Spaniels. As the CD's title implies, their vocal approach and instrumentation is the primordial sound of rock: 'At My Front Door' is a staple. The title track is in like vein, with jangly guitar and uncultured 2 and 4 snare whacking. 'She Don't Run Around' straddles the parameters vocally, with a falsetto overlay and 'ling-a-ling' back-ups. The CD leaves off at the El Dorados' 1957 recording sessions, after which they continued to appear sporadically with a retinue of replacement members. Novelty track: 'Annie's Answer,' the El Dorado's response to the 'Annie' phenomenon, where various groups would issue singles around a certain theme; singer Hazel McCollum takes the lead.
