I like "Since I Don't Have You"

Yeah, buy the Since I Don't Have You by Guns N' Roses is a little better although Guns N' Roses made it way more diffrent then all the other songs GN'R did on the the Spagetti Inciedent and Live like a Suicide.

The Skyliners,out of Pittsburgh,Pa. brought the full orchestra into the doo-wop era on their songs.

Good band but not in the doo wop major league.

I can't say enough good things about Jimmy Beaumont & The Skyliners!Although they were a little ahead of my time, I knew them & always loved Doowhop. I think they should be inducted into the R&R Hall of Fame.It's a shame they haven't been!This group especially touched my heart & still do when I hear them.

Not really, Happy. I like them, but the only thing they really have in their favor was Phil Spector's high esteem of their "This I Swear", calling it his all-time favorite record. That's pretty impressive, but not really enough, m'fraid.

Happy, I'm not sure if you're familiar with my blog, but the very first entry was about the difficulties in getting doo-wop properly acknowledged in the RnRHoF.
