      Here's a Double Doo Wop from the early rock and roll archives.   

      The first song is from The Flamingos ... one of the premiere vocal groups of the 50's & 60's.  

      The Next tune is from a group very few have ever heard of ... The Quin-Tones. This song from 1958 is their only hit.  It sold close to a million copies from which they received no royalties.

      Give these two songs a listen.  They deserve it.

     Chris Montez and Kathy Young were two teenagers from California in the early sixties. Chris grew up in Hawthorne, California, the hometown of the Beach Boys.  His first hit song at 19 landed him a tour of England where his opening act was a rising band called The Beatles.  The collarless jacket Chris wore on stage at that time inspired The Beatles to follow suit.  Kathy Young, from Santa Ana, California meanwhile had a million selling hit on her hands at the tender age of 15.  

    The two young Californians teamed up as "Chris & Kathy" on this song that Chris co-wrote with Barry DeVorzon.

     In our book this song of theirs is a Hit!  Give a listen & a vote here on ISHBAH.

    The first song is from one of the very first female Doo Wop groups.  These gals have a street named after them in the Bronx ... that's a Big Deal!

    Lou's second pick is from this legendary vocal group from his hometown,  Pittsburgh. 

    Sit back, relax and give these two gems a listen & reminisce.
