On the occasion of Record Store Day 2020, Le Chant du Monde is proud to announce its first doo-wop compilation. The popularity of this music among young singers in urban American communities, in the 1950s, such as; New York, Chicago, or Philadelphia, is largely due to the fact that the music can be interpreted, advantageously, as cappella. The doo-wop wave submerged, in the United States, from east to west, and between 1950 and 1960 with more than 15,000 vocal groups releasing at least one record.
In 2020, the embers are not completely extinguished and nostalgia is still present, bringing together both the great classics of the genre, but also some very rare pearls. It features The Capris, The Earls, The Penguins, The Tru-Tones and more.
