"Heavenly Father" by the Supremes with Flo on lead, particularly the middle eight.

I'm not allowed to hear it, unfortunately, but I did catch a few seconds of it here (no middle eight, sad to say):

Very nice indeed. That's when they were The Primettes, right?

Not sure. I have it as a bonus track on a reissue of Florence's solo album. It's an older song, so there may be other good versions of it out there.

Not sure how much of this is reliable but it makes for an interesting read:

This Mary Wilson-led B-side from 1960 is pretty cool:

That flute reminds me of the alternative version of the Boys' "I'm So Young". Great piano too...

Found this cool track in Winamp by typing "doo wop": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2ptDgMOzc0

Lead by Earl Carroll, sings "...but my real name is Mr. Earl". After the Cadillacs would join the Coasters.

Short notice: the cat you see to the left is the best. Not counting your indoor cat who might have habit sitting at your left side when you post at SmileySmile.

Fred Krueger's style is timeless.

A doo wop classic!

This next one has always intrigued me. "Daddy's Home" has a most curious history attached to it:
