Doo-wop is a genre of rhythm and blues music developed in the 1940s by African American youth, mainly in the large cities of the upper East Coast, including New York. It features vocal group harmony that carries an engaging melodic line to a simple beat with little or no instrumentation. Lyrics are simple, usually about love, ornamented with nonsense syllables, and often featuring, in the bridge, a melodramatically heartfelt recitative addressed to the beloved.
Genre: Doo Wop. Label: Ace Records. During and just after World War II, Northern California’s San Francisco Bay Area boomed with military bases and naval yards, attracting thousands of black workers and servicemen. Cities dotting the East Bay–Berkeley, Oakland, and Richmond– developed thriving neighbourhoods with busy nightclubs. Small record companies sprang up to supply jukeboxes with local blues and jazz talent. One of them, Music City, opened around 1950 but didn’t record in earnest until 1954.

Ray Dobard's Music City operation was at the heart of the Bay Area's black music scene from the 50s onwards. By the 1970s his shop and studio were places where aspiring funk, soul and jazz groups would go to attempt to find fame and fortune. Few did, but some great music was laid down, the best of which is here. The CD contains 17 tracks, 15 of which are previously unissued, and are a great view into a lost era of Bay Area music. The best known artists are Two Things In One and Darondo. The booklet features in-depth notes from Bay Area expert and Music City historian Alec Palao, and an introduction by compiler Dean Rudland that places the music in its contemporary context.

The roots of the doo-wop style can be found as early as the records of the Mills Brothers and the Ink Spots in the 1930s and ’40s. The Mills Brothers turned small-group harmony into an art form when, in many of their recordings, they used their vocal harmony to simulate the sound of string or reed sections.
