    Here's our Double Doo Wop selection for ISHBAH this week. These two great groups set the pace for all the music that followed.

    We "Sincerely" believe that these songs are on the right track to Make You Sing Again.

    Sing some Doo Wop baby when you get the Blues.

    This is the country band that got Lou into country music in the first place. From the hills of Tennessee to the steel mills of Pittsburgh ...  Abby Neil and the Ranch Girls.

    Lou's path led him to the stage of The Grand Ole Opry  where he sang our second tune in his new Podcast.  Listen to it all here on ISBAH.  It's ten minutes well spent.

       The seasons may change but this guys voice is always right for any season.

        Here's one of his songs that didn't quite reach the heights his major hits did but it is well deserving of a second listen here on ...

It SHOULD Have Been a HIT!

      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.
