    For those unable or unwilling to shell out for Rhino's exemplary four-disc Doo Wop Box, Street Corner Serenade: Greatest Doo Wop Hits of the '50s and '60s is a terrific single-disc substitute, featuring 22 of the very biggest hits and especial highlights from that set. In fact, it's arguably the best single-disc doo wop compilation on the market, although The Doo Wop Box is still a more highly recommended purchase. ~ Steve Huey
