Synopsis

This title captures the spirit of an era in spectacular visuals, revealing the roots of the 60's music explosion. It is full of archival photography, posters, album covers, lyrics and more! It reveals the fascinating pioneers who started it all, from Marlon Brando, challenging squeaky-clean youth to 50's sex symbols, like Bardot and Monroe. The spirit of the doo wop era is captured in spectacular visuals! This landmark volume by radio legend 'Cousin Brucie' Morrow not only revisits the gorgeous, lilting harmonies of unforgettable doo wop favorites, but also traces music, politics, art, architecture and popular culture from doo wop's 1940s roots up into the sixties. Chapters are filled with priceless memorabilia from the period, including duotone and full-color archival photography, posters, album covers, newspaper articles, magazine covers, lyrics and more.
