About:
An exploration of the history of doo wop music.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Doo wop, featuring stellar vocal harmonies sung a cappella, was born on street corners in the 1950s. Soon, The Coasters, The Drifters, and Frankie Valli were singing their hearts out to America on Alan Freed’s influential radio show. In Brent Wilson’s doc, a who’s who of musicians trace the evolution of American pop music from doo wop and Phil Spector’s legendary “wall of sound” up through Motown, surf music, and the British Invasion. It’s a toe-tapping stroll down memory lane for music lovers of all ages.
