Looking For An Echo
A cappella harmonising, soprano falsetto and bass vocalising were all signatures of the doo-wop sound from 1956 -- 1964. Hundreds of these groups sprang up from the streets, parks and subways of New York, Philadelphia and Chicago, recorded a few songs, made the charts and then disappeared as quickly as they came. But when you heard a great doo-wop moment, you knew it... Who were these groups? Where they really the heroes we imagined them to be, or were they just guys from the neighbourhood? What happened to them? Where are they today?
Looking For An Echo is the inspirational story of the rise, fall and rebirth of one such doo-wop band. Who could forget ''Vinnie and the Dreamers'' smash hit, ''This I Swear''?
