ooh I like this one!
in 1963 a revamped line-up consisting of JIMMY NISI along with RICHIE GIOVELLI-CARMINE DESENA AND LOUIE LIGOURI recorded this uptempo classic.
so many g roups; some made it, so many didn't; it doesn't mean they were bad; we were so spoiled! ROCK N'ROLL IS HERE TO STAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Classic Do-Wop elements although I find the lead a little flat. Maybe it's just me.
Excellent! Classic uptempo doo wop!
Wow, energy good beat and sound...
The group is very good, but this record suffers from a lack of instruments. I think there's only a drum.
Bass and rhythm guitar mixed way back.
Strong double sided uptempo doowop..Classic N.Y. This group, with changes in personnel, were also the Creations ("Strolling Through The Park" on Pine Crest) and the Velvet Keys ("My Baby's Gone" on King). The Pine Crest release - which is a styrene press with paste on labels -is very sought after and brings a pretty high price, especially in top condition.
The Velvet KeysComprised of a totally different group 1957 king records. I was a member of that group .I worked with various groups over the years writing arranging producing . i always enjoyed my special association with the guys as till this date 2018 we all stay in touch. Phil Spina
Correct the Riffs originally the Creations recorded Strolling in the park- Wake up in morning.I changed the name to the Riffs gave them a new lead overhauled the harmonies wrote and arranged a few tunes and these guys worled so hard and i thought they did a kick ass job. The Beatles sqaushed any chance of success.Fil Spina- Philip SpinaProducer of Another time Around Cds 2016
A common subject sung about in an uncommon superfine way, the same way I try to write music.
I love this, generally I think I prefer the more uptempo stuff.
myself and a guy named joe sigerello from new jersey, found about 6 copies of this record in a used book store in queens in april 1974, and the other dop wop collectors went crazy once they heard it, a great song it is beyond any doubt.
@PJDooWop He did. I taped it off the radio when he interviewed the group around 1979 or 1980.

Thanks for all the positive comments we really appreciate the fact that people try to keep this great doo wop sound alive..Fil Spina
OOOOOOHHHHHH I get it now. If I can ever stop playing this I'll get to it ;)
WMCA Good Guy's were the major station in New York and they were suppose to help promote the record but,do to lack of distribution it was never played.The song has been done in Germany and is well known in the Doo Wop circles.I know Don K played it because we did his show with Ribetones and Velvet Riffs
I'm sure Don K Reed played it at some point, but the current CBS format is a waste of time.
WHEN CBS stopped doo wopp; so many people complained! I was one of them
Fun tune Phil! Too bad it isn't on CBS FM.
I do agree that songwriters are one of the unsung heroes of the era. That's a damn shame that you didn't record your song professionally. Any plans on doing something with it?
PJ thanks for the plug , old Doo Wop songwriters really don't get much credit for createtivity --FIL SPINA (PHIL SPINA)I wrote a song call "All Grown Up" never got to do it professionally yet???
always loved this
don't bump into people while you're bopping
Good stuff Neil. It's always a pleasure to introduce someone to a new favorite
PJ, this is unfair! Now I owe you about 97 pints of beer when you come to England! Ah what the hell, you're worth it. Thanks for another great upload mate and for contributing to my continuing education in the cool iceberg of DooWop that previously I only knew the tip of. Great track mate, immediately added to my second playlist for saturday nights fixin the bike in the garage.
very good :)
