Product Notes

The Herald Records Doowop Collection 1953-63 - It's a feast of classic doowop from a label which was at the heart of the genre.n. Che Herald label was founded in 1950 by Fred Mendelsohn, formerly with Savoy, and he was soon joined by Al Silver, who owned the pressing plant that made the label's records. Silver had an ear for R&B and doowop, and built Herald into a creative hub for R&B recording and most particularly becoming renowned for it's output of doowop recordings by a string of different groups during the late '50s and into the 1960s. Most notable among those groups were The Nutmegs, The Turbans, The Mello Kings and Maurice Williams & The Zodiacs, who all had hits on the label. This great-value 89-track 3-CD set brings together most of the label's releases by artists whose work falls broadly into the category of doowop, although this is obviously not a definition which can be slavishly or precisely applied. It features the A & B sides of most of the Herald releases by the groups named above, plus The Embers, The Five Willows, The Sonnets, The Cashmeres, The Rocketeers, The Thrillers, The Sunbeams, The Mint Juleps, Little Butchie Saunders, The Four Js, The Desires, The Loungers, The Vocalaires, The Concords and The Premiers. It features the Maurice Williams & The Zodiacs' R&B No. 1 'Stay', and their other hits 'I Remember' and 'Come Along', The Nutmegs' hits 'Story Untold' and 'Ship Of Love', The Turbans' No. 3 'When You Dance' and the Mello-Kings' 'Tonite, Tonite'. It's a feast of classic doowop from a label which was at the heart of the genre.
