Doo-Wop originated in the '40s in African American communities and became maintream in the '50s and 60's. The Orioles helped develop the doo-wop sound with their hit "It's Too Soon to Know" by Deborah Chessler (1948).

 

Some of the popular groups and their songs:

1954 The Penguins - Earth Angel

1954 The Wrens - Come Back My Love

1955 The Rainbows - Mary Lee

1955 The Valentines - Lily Maebelle

1957 The Monotones - Book Of Love

1957 The Charts - Dance Girl

1958 The Danleers - One Summer Night

1963 The Crystals - Da Doo Ron Ron

 

To name a few...
The Silhouettes - The Silhouettes were a Philadelphia doo-wop and soul group best known for their self-penned song Get A Job, recorded in 1957 and a number one hit on the R&B and pop charts in 1958.

Later Members

 

John Wilson (lead, 1961-1968)
Cornelius Brown (bass 1961-1968)

Elaine Lewis, widow of Silhouette Rick Lewis was an integral part of the group's revival in the 1980s and who is now releasing a brand new CD compilation of the groups music.

 

Elaine was born in Philadelphia, PA. and as a child picked up the guitar right away, parents bought her a uke when she was around 10. She says: "Thanks to Elvis Presley being all the rage. I figured out chords on my own, I later found out that what I was playing were real chords--C, Em, G and so on. Later was given a really cheap guitar with a chord book and learned all the chords from that and I played by ear and played along with the radio and records..."

The CD took a year to complete, and Elaine had material on every kind of medium--records, reel-to-reel tapes, MP3's, cassette tapes, CD's, even her phone's voice mail had material.

 

The CD is very creative, a fabulous tribute to the group and a wonderful collectors item.

 

We are honored to have her with us on Sunday, November 6, 2001 at 3PM Pacific /5PM Central/6PM Eastern.
