ABOUT THIS BOOK
The Chicago Tribune's Bill Dahl praised Robert Pruter's Doowop for "vividly describ[ing] an enchanting time on the local music scene,  when a handful of teenagers could taste rock 'n' roll stardom with harmonies  they cooked up on a street corner."
 
Pruter foraged sources from fanzines to the Chicago Defender and conducted extensive interviews in cooking up Doowop, which chronicles the careers of such legendary 1950s groups as the Flamingos, the Moonglows, the Spaniels, and the El Dorados, along with virtually every other Chicago doowop group that contributed to that era.
