Here is a jazzy take on a classic pop/rock tune. The original version, sung by the Drifters, with all of its back up harmony and part singing, is a great beginning for a choral arrangement. In the hands of this skilled arranger it is a real concert piece.

Michael Buble : Pro Vocal Series

Michael Buble, a swingin' young Vancouver vocalist and major new talent! He has won several awards, including a Grammy and multiple Juno Awards. His first album reached the top ten in Lebanon, the UK and his home country of Canada, yet achieved only modest chart success in the United States. He found worldwide commercial success with his 2005 album It's Time, and his 2007 album Call Me Irresponsible was an even bigger success, reaching number one on the Canadian album chart, the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, the Australian ARIA Albums Chart and the European charts. Buble has sold more than 20 million albums worldwide. This Pro Vocal series contains the lyrics, melody, and chord symbols for eight of his hit songs. The CD contains demos for listening, and then separate backing tracks so you can sing along. The CD is playable on any CD, but it is also enhanced for PC and Mac computer users so you can adjust the recording to any pitch without changing the tempo! Perfect for home rehearsal, parties, auditions, corporate events, and gigs without a backup band. Or for singing just for the fun of it!

A Moments Pleasure : A New Beginning : 00  1 CD

A Moments Pleasure : A New Beginning

Benny (Bird) Primetime Daniels, John Farrington, John Jones, Bill Keith and James (J.P.) Phillips are A Moment's Pleasure, and they sing polished, smooth, deep-bassed, close-harmony a cappella street corner doo-wop. Formed in 1982, all the group members have paid their dues (dues-wop?) big time, and it shows. 15 classic songs, from 'What's Your Name,' 'Farewell My Love,' 'Sitting In the Park' and 'Save the Last Dance for Me,' to 'Come Go with Me,' 'So Fine,' 'Sincerely' and 'Don't Leave Me Baby' - it's all great doo-wop with more of a 60s flavor without losing the vintage R&B 1950's sound!

Songlist: What's Your Name?, Could This Be Magic, Farewell My Love, Sitting in the Park, Talking To My Heart, Save The Last Dance For Me, While Walking, Lost Love, Come Go With Me, So Fine, I Do, Sincerely, Peace Of Mind, Never Let Me Go, Don't Leave Me Baby

The Drifters : Up On The Roof / Under The Boardwalk : 00  1 CD : 6211

The Drifters : Up On The Roof / Under The Boardwalk

Two original early '60s LPs are combined here and the result is a virtual Drifters Greatest Hits. "Up on the Roof," Carole King's gorgeously romantic ode to working class escape and freedom, is here in both the hit single and slightly longer LP versions (the single is in mono, the LP version is stereo with a longer intro). Elsewhere, you'll find a real embarrassment of riches, with song after brilliant hit song from the fertile imaginations of the great Brill Building writers of the pre-Beatle era, including Barry Mann and Cynthia Weill ("On Broadway"), Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman ("Sweets for My Sweet," "This Magic Moment," "Save the Last Dance for Me"), plus lesser known but equally evocative songs from Burt Bacharach and Otis Blackwell. Timeless stuff.

Songlist: Up On The Roof, There Goes My Baby, Sweets For My Sweet, This Magic Moment, Mexican Divorce, Stranger On The Shore, What To Do, Save The Last Dance For Me, Lonliness Or Happiness, Another Night With The Boys, (If You Cry) True Love, True Love, Room Full Of Tears, When My Little Girl Is Smiling Ruby Baby, Under the Boardwalk, One Way Love, On Broadway, Didn't It , I Feel Good All Over, Vaya Con Dios, Rat Race, In The Land Of Make Believe, If You Don't Come Back, Let The Music Play, I'll Take You Home

Jay, Ray and Gee : The Street Entertainer (Vol 4) : 00  1 CD

Jay, Ray and Gee : The Street Entertainer (Vol 4)

"A'Capella New Orleans" by local favorites Jay, Ray & Gee is a generous helping of soulful Doo-Wop, tasty as a hot mess of Cajun shrimp. "Runaround Sue," "Save The Last Dance for Me," "Who Wrote the Book of Love?," the Otis Redding anthem "Dock of the Bay," "Don't Know Much About History," "Games People Play," Van Morrison's "Brown-Eyed Girl," "I'll Be There," "In the Still of the Night," "Let It Whip," "Kiss and Say Goodbye," finishing with the spirituals "This Little Light of Mine" and "Savior, Hear My Humble Cry." These guys have paid some dues, you can hear it in their voices, and we would fly to New Orleans just to catch some of their authentic, roots Doo-Wop live at some funky Big Easy bar!

Songlist: Jailhouse Rock, Runaround Sue, Save the Last Dance for Me, The Book of Love, Sitting on the Dock of the Bay, Wonderful World, (They Just Can't Stop it) The Games People Play, Brown-Eyed Girl, I'll Be Around, In the Still of the Night (I Remember), Let it Whip, Kiss and Say Goodbye, This Little Light of Mine, Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior, Is There ANybody Here Who Loves My Jesus?

The Manhattan Transfer : Tonin'

A stellar assembly of famous guests contribute to this 1994 recording of classic pop standards. "Groovin'" is a duet between tenor singer Alan Paul and Felix Cavaliere, the song's composer. The late Laura Nyro, writer of "La-La Means I Love You, "duets with soprano Cheryl Bentyne; Janis Siegel, alto, gets her turn with Bette Midler, on "It's Gonna Take A Miracle." Phil Collins steps forward with bass vocalist Tim Hauser to sing "Too Busy Thinking About My Baby." Other highlights: "The Thrill Is Gone," with B.B.

The Marcels : Summertime : 00  1 CD : 7030

The Marcels : Summertime

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.

Songlist: Zoom, A Sunday Kind of Love, Teeter Totter Love, Over The Rainbow, I Could Have Danced All Night, Summertime, Where There's A Will, Why Do You Have To Go, I Put The Bomp, That Lucky Old Sun, You Gave Me Peace Of Mind, Spanish Harlem, Save The Last Dance For Me, I'll Be Forever Loving You, Two People In The World, Zing Went The Strings Of My Heart, Got A Job, Stormy Weather, When I'm With You, For Your Precious Love, That Lucky Old Sun, Close Your Eyes, Soul Dinner, You Gave Me Peace Of Mind

Memory Lane : Acappella Ave : 00  1 CD : 6138

Memory Lane : Acappella Ave    onsale

Though we have scant information on this sextet, save that they come from Pennsylvania, we can say that their sound was obviously inspired by the great doo-wop groups like the Spaniels and Moonglows. This is a 1999 release, but, as their name implies, the singers of Memory Lane aren't about today. Their arrangements really capture the flavor of the genuine article, the performances have punch and authority, and the blend is earthy, thick and resonant. Favorite cuts include 'California Dreamin',' 'Mio Amore' and 'I Like It Like That.'

Songlist: Tell Me Today, Let's Go, Let's Go, Let's Go, A Quiet Place, Ready For Your Love, Don't Say Goodbye, California Dreamin', Save the Last Dance for Me, Mio Amore, Da Doo Ron Ron, Please Stay, I Like It Like That , Never Never, Drip Drop, False Love, So Fine

Things To Come : Together We Stand : 00  1 CD

Things To Come : Together We Stand

"Together," the second CD of Things To Come, four smooth-singing, good-looking black men, is a soulful, Doo-Wop treat! 19 songs, some of our favorites are "Little Bitty Pretty One," The Jesters' "Let's Go, Let's Go, Let's Go," The Drifters' "Save The Last Dance for Me" and "Up On The Roof/Under The Boardwalk," The Moonglows' "My Diary," The Temptations' Motown hit "Ain't Too Proud To Beg" and Lenny Welsh's "Since I Fell For You." This is some sweet Doo-Wop from an excellent group right now, and we expect even better Things To Come.

Songlist: T.T.C. Jingle, Little Bitty Pretty One, Somewhere, Thrill Upon A Hill, Save the Last Dance for Me, Star Spangled Banner, You Can Depend on Me, That Cat Is High, My Girlfriend, In My Diary, Cooling Water, I'm On the Outside Looking In, Under the Boardwalk / Up On The Roof, I'm the One Love Forgot, Can I?, Roll Jordan Roll, Ain't Too Proud Too Beg, Since I Fell For You
