I don't know why it took so long for the two of us to figure out we needed to do a mix together. We have both been on AOTM since 2005, I joined in May and he in September of that year. In any case, we finally decided to this past January. In the interim, I went off AOTM for religious reasons ;-) but coming back it was his idea to do a doowop with doowad theme. This was fine with me because, to paraphrase myself, "everybody loves doo-wop."Doowadette and I had just finished up her jazz epic and I had that Artie Shaw track left over, so I thought why not start off a vocal jazz mix with an instrumental version of a doo-wop classic, just to get things off to a contradictory start. The doowad family was even inspired to watch the great Rob Reiner film as a primer on doo-wop for the little one (as well as showing her what she already knew about 12-year old boys). Regarding the mix, it really doesn't matter who was odds and who was evens (I've already told you anyway) since we were sequencing classic after classic from both sides of the pond, from sentimental to just plain silly and then overtly romantic, guaranteed to get your toes tapping and your mouth grinning. I told Sam I wanted to bookend it with another out-of-genre track, so we went to two disks. However, we decided to limit ourselves to 20 per CD, since these little 2 minute wonders could overload the capacity of an AOTM list. Oh, and after I mocked up the cover collage below, I decided not to vandalize it with the mix name or our names, just letting the artists speak for themselves (with a few extras to fill in the edges).Speaking of the picture, which 60s/70s rock star appears here in clean-cut days? Part B of the Trivia is what relationship does said star have to our mix? The winner gets a big pat on the back. Enjoy and enjoy.

This looks amazing, I'm a-swaying and a-snapping my fingers and I have to find me some of these songs. Really, really great mix. And ditto cover.

Great stuff, guys. It's hard to type and keep snapping my fingers at the same time. Better than the late night infomercials. Could this be released under the K-Wad label? Thanks for the link.

Swell indeed. I don't know where these newfangled musicians nowadays think that a "bass" has to have strings!

Haven't heard that Diamonds track in years. Two giants of AOTM have given birth to a finger-clickin', shoe-shuffling monster. See you on a street corner,boys.

Super mix by a couple of super mixers! Nice job, both of you!!

very enjoyable, guys. favorites on side one are The Cadillacs, The Hollywood Flames and Johnny Cymbal. on side two: Johnny McRae, The Pearls, The Chords, Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers and Thurston Harris. I seem to lean toward the zippy numbers, I guess. I'm curious about the trivia, though I have no idea. I figure it must be that Robert Downey Jr.-looking guy down there at the bottom in the middle.
