This strong compilation of R&B is based on the repertoire recorded by or purchased by Hollywood-based R&B entrepreneur John Dolphin between 1950 and 1957. 'Wow Wow Baby' is Ace's third multi-artist compilation of Dolphin R&B (with a little doo wop and gospel thrown in).

Deep research into the archive has brought to light some tapes and acetates that were feared lost, plus several previously undocumented goodies. Only three of the tracks have been out on CD before 24 years ago while the rests are receiving their first ever legitimate anthologising in the UK. Even if the titles may not all be familiar, a perusal of the list of names of the featured artists which include many of the foremost R&B acts of the era will be sure to guarantee 'Wow, Wow, Baby's appeal to all lovers and collectors of the type of music it contains.

Beautifully mastered from fresh transfers of the original tapes and acetates, this high quality compilation shows Ace's commitment to 1940s and 50s R&B remains as strong as ever. It is the foundation on which the company was built, 40 years ago, and they have no plans to abandon it.
