The Belmonts Cigars,Acappella,Candy

If you love doo-woop like I do you will love this album. That's My Desire is the best I've ever heard. Where or When, We Belong Together and the Street Corner Symphoney are terrific. The Belmonts are truely one of the greatest Doo-Woop groups of all time.

Classic ‘50s doo-wop sound applied to pop classics and ‘70s hits

Though typically thought of as the second half of “Dion and the Belmonts,” the group came together before their two-year stint backing Dion, and continued for decades afterwards. In addition to their immediate post-Dion records, the group continued into the 1960s with their own label and releases on United Artists, ABC and Dot. When the oldies revival of the early ‘70s caught back up to them, they released this fine album for Buddah in 1972, applying their a cappella street corner harmonies to pop classics and then-contemporary hits. The ballads are richer than the up-tempo numbers, giving the vocalists more room to stretch out and intertwine, but a cover of the Crystals’ “Da Doo Ron Ron” will remind you of the Belmonts’ swaggering days with Dion. Their cover of B.J. Thomas’ “Rock and Roll Lullaby,” with its soaring falsetto lead and lush harmonies, is terrific and the closing “Street Corner Symphony” takes a four-minute stroll through the history of doo-wop riffs. This is a sweet, nostalgic album that’s weathered the years a lot better than the group’s velveteen jackets. [©2011 hyperbolium dot com]

The history of the Belmonts is usually linked to that of their lead singer, Dion (born Dion DiMucci, July 18, 1939), with whom they had their biggest hits. In point of fact, however, the link up between Dion and the Belmonts actually lasted only two years, and the group existed (albeit briefly) prior to and a long after his time with them. Angelo D'Aleo (born February 3, 1940), first tenor; Fred Milano (born August 22, 1939), second tenor; and Carlo Mastrangelo (b. October 5, 1938), baritone; and...
