Doo-Wop Acappella : A Story of Street Corners, Echoes, and Three-Part Harmonies Hardback

Description

Scholar and singer Lawrence Pitilli explores doo-wop acapella groups as manifestations of urban change, mass migrations, ethnic acculturation and changing radio and recording industries.

He reveals how groups displayed the dynamics of cultural change in the "sounds"-sonic and linguistic-that every generation seeks to make and remake for themselves.
