    The Lamplighters / The Rivingtons
    Evolution Of A Vocal Group 1953-1962 2CD


    This unique double-disc set traces the evolution of one of the most popular and versatile DooWop groups of their era, between 1953-1962, through their many and various personnel changes.
    They recorded under various identities: The Lamplighters, The Tenderfoots, The Sharps, The Jacks, Frantic Johnny Rogers, The Ebbtides, The Twisters, The Four After Fives, The Showstoppers, Dante's Friends, The Crenshaws and finally The Rivingtons.
    Additionally, during this period they also backed artists like Jimmy Witherspoon, Lil Greenwood, Paul Anka, Thurston Harris, Duane Eddy and Sammy Turner, on record.
    Several of these sides are serious collectors' rarities, whilst The Rivingtons' Papa-Oom-Mow-Mow was famously the blueprint for The Trashmen's classic Surfin' Bird two years later.
    This is the first time that this body of work has been gathered, and many of these tracks are unavailable elsewhere on CD.
