    Wow Wow Baby! - 1950s R&B, Blues & Gospel From Dolphin’s Of Hollywood CD

    This strong selection of 1950s Rhythm & Blues is based on the repertoire recorded by or purchased by Hollywood-based R&B entrepreneur John Dolphin between 1950 and 1957.
    Wow Wow Baby is the third in this superb series of multi-artist compilation of Dolphin R&B (with a little Doo Wop and Gospel thrown in).
    Deep research into the archive has brought to light some tapes and acetates that were feared lost, plus several previously undocumented goodies.
    Only three of the tracks have been out on CD before – 24 years ago – while the rests are receiving their first ever legitimate anthologising in the UK.
    Even if the titles may not all be familiar, a perusal of the list of names of the featured artists – which include many of the foremost R&B acts of the era – will be sure to guarantee Wow Wow Baby‘s appeal to all lovers and collectors of the type of music it contains.
    Beautifully mastered from fresh transfers of the original tapes and acetates.
