Comments

sticker on front cover.

Inside The Groove

A nice compilation of Billy Williams' Doo-Wop hits in 1952-1957, released as this album maybe in 1958.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Contains typical middle-tempo Doo-Wop songs. Some of them are very interesting: especially B-5 “Azure-Te” is middle-slow-tempo Doo-Wop song with VERY LOUSY ORGAN CHORDS in every break. Funny and pretty.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

6 out of 10
