Fabulous Flames - I'm So All Alone

Another lonesome song, this time on the Baytone label out of San Fransisco. Flip over for a beautiful ballad, 'Lover',  but it's the swinging 'I'm So Alone' that I keep coming back to. The year was circa 1961

Continental Five - My Lonely Friend

On the Nu Kat label from 1959. So uplifting and I really like the rough production, probably utilising one microphone to capture the group's sound.

The Highlighters - The Bull

Someone is selling this on ebay for 100 US dollars if anyone is interested!A great up-tempo Spanish themed doo wop. The flip is another up-beat number called Flang Dang Doo, you can hear it on the WFMU Fool's Paradise archive show from December 2nd 2000.

The Pelicans - Down In Mexico

The Pelicans also went by the name "The Kidds." This is a previously unreleased recording which I first heard on this record. In fact, this groovy little number started my interest in all things "doo wop."
