So to begin with.Obvious musicology facts. The Stones and the Beatles were really influenced by the switch from blues to rhythm and blues. Not the only ones but the most high profile ones. Aexis…Continue

This is an example of the soul and feeling, the superb musicianship that sent us crazy this side of the pond

How about a British version of funk

We did not ignore the funk neither, there's another version of this by Uncle Funk but I prefer this one!

The Dell's track

Doo wop is a bit of mystery to me as been a little early to me. the Del Vikings Come Go With Me does spring to mind. Lee Andrews and the Hearts were another group that continued into the sixties that we picked up on. Somebody that knows more than me would be able to better comment but the influence of do-wop is obvious in what we listened to the Dells I mentioned in my post being a case in point a group that can be seen as having 5 decades in the music industry, that takes some doing. I'll post a particular Dell's favourite of mine with this as perhaps a good example of doo-wop metamorphising into 5 and in other cases 3 part harmony. There you would be into the Primettes or the Temptations as we all know them now and that was'ny their only manifestation as they developed, crikey there's a lot of examples.
As to the beginnings of the doo-wop expression that's a little further back than i've looked at but would be interested in any others views.

How about slightly more hard assed stuff fro Muscle Shoals, the dancers we see are from a later pastiche of what we used to get up to. Mind you, you funkadelics were on psychadelics we were on speed!!

what about this early one from the Ohio Players, remember the 'Honey' album the sleeve alone made you want to buy it!!!!

Well in the midst of a senior moment I can't knock that there are people within the group I ran with that would be able to give you a more definitive answer than I can but I'm putting a video with this that shows the tunes I know them from.

Great Purdie. I thought Parliament started out in doo-wop, but I could be having a senior moment.
