Although for many decades THE GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK remained principally the domain of jazz-styled singers and musicians, it has undergone a significant revival in recent years, in terms of the mass market's rediscovery of the genre.

Loosely defined, these are the most popular and enduring songs from the 1920s through to the 50s, most of which were written for Broadway theatre, musical theatre and/or Hollywood musical movies.

Although for many decades THE GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK remained principally the domain of jazz-styled singers and musicians, it has undergone a significant revival in recent years, in terms of the mass market's rediscovery of the genre.

Loosely defined, these are the most popular and enduring songs from the 1920s through to the 50s, most of which were written for Broadway theatre, musical theatre and/or Hollywood musical movies.

And although mainstream Pop has generally endured a somewhat difficult relationship with what has always been perceived as 'serious' music, a great many Doo Wop performers dabbled in the Great American Songbook over the years.

This unique set presents thirty memorable examples, featuring artists like Dion & The Belmonts, The Platters, The Duprees, The Flamingos, The Drifters, The Skyliners, The Marcels, The Five Satins, The Coasters, The Spaniels and many more.

Many of these sides are hard to find elsewhere on CD.
