Fans of the Vocal Harmony Groups that developed in the late 40s and 50s in the US know already that there was a lot more going on than what is nowadays subsumed under “doo-wop“ label. DJ, collector and expert DJ Crille now compiled a new album featuring rare and underground vocal-harmony and doo-wop songs from the late 50s and early 60s. The album, titled „Vocal Group Madness – 14 Bam-A-Lam Vocal Group Rockers from the 50s and 60s“ showcases a selection of tracks that are hard to find and rarely compiled. The album is a compilation of obscure and definitely rocking tracks from the archives of some of the coolest vocal harmony groups of the era, including The Ideals, The Eventuals, The Neons, and Little Anthony and the Imperials. Most of these tracks were previously only available on hard-to-find vinyl records and have been carefully remastered to bring them to their full sonic potential. The album features 14 tracks in total, each showcasing the raw power and vocal prowess that made doo-wop and vocal harmony groups such a popular genre during the era. From the driving beat of „Horror of the black museum by The Nightmares to the soulful harmonies of “Zing went the Strings of my Heart, every track is a gem in its own right.
