Beginning with this mixed (three black & two white) group's initial success with 'Blue Moon,' which was #1 on the Pop and R&B charts in 1961 (displacing none other than Elvis), the Marcels carved out an unmistakeable niche in the annals of pop history. It is their 'bomp baba bomp...da dang da dang, da ding a dong ding' bass intro, heard on 'Zoom,' 'That Lucky Old Sun' and others that is forever in the ear of every doo-wop audience, casual or otherwise. 'Blue Moon' is not on this CD, but pretty much of the rest of the Marcels recorded output is; like many other groups, personnel departed more consistently than they remained, so some cuts are stronger than others. Signature songs such as 'Summertime,' 'Over The Rainbow,' 'Sunday Kind Of Love' and 'I Put The Bomp' display a flair and musicality a cut above the average and are terrific R & B tinged doo-wop.
