Doo-whop/ doo-wop became popular in 50's and 60's and it is a style of
vocal-based rhythm and blues music. Pop oriented style has smooth,
consonant vocal harmonies. The 1234 has four members: Jacky Ramolli and
Nano Ramolli are tenors, Bernardo Ramolli is baritone and Jesus Ramolli
Opening track She's The One is a great choice to doo-whop kind of style.
The 1234 had lowered tempo in songs like I Wanna Be Sedated and in
general it is pretty much version what they wanted to keep simple.
Rockaway Beach is faster one in their rate. Most of the songs has
frolicsome and as well tongue-in-cheek elements. The 1234 concentrated
to early Ramones albums. Most new song is Daytime Dilemma (Dangers Of
Love) from Too Tough To Die album.
