(The Flamingos - Quintessential Doo-Wop)

I thought I would end up our tour through the world of Doo-Wop with probably one of the best known and most revered Doo-Wop groups of the 1950s. The Flamingos had their biggest hit "I Only Have Eyes For You", which is still played and acknowledged by many as "the" Doo-Wop song of the century. But they had a whole catalog of great songs, all of which epitomized that lush, echo chamber drenched sound they were synonymous with.

Here is one of their classic tracks, Love Walked In, one of many hits from their milestone career.

It's aged since 1959 - but in a nice way.
