    One thought on “Doo Wop: The Music, the Times, the Era”

    1. Despite my 2-star rating (was considering 3 stars), this book will be of interest to fans of doo wop.

    3. Doo-wop has always been one of my favorite forms of music, and many bands that are my favorites were heavily influenced by it (The Beach Boys, most British invasion).

    4. Lots of great pictures and pop culture references. My big complaint is the format, though. The main text is constantly interrupted by sidebars. Sometimes you'd go three pages of sidebars and then the text would pick back up in mid sentence. It makes for a disjointed reading experience. Still, it's a love letter to a music and an era, and it's worth a read if you're interested in the period.
