Hello there! We feature an iconic doo-wop tune, Earth Angel. We will first review the original tune by The Penguins. Next we will discuss a cover of that song by The Crew-Cuts. Finally, we will show the song as it appeared in the movie Back To The Future. The Penguins were an early West Coast pop group.
The song was first released as Original Sound Ray sat down at Frank's piano, played the " Earth Angel " chord changes and immediately came up with the first lyrics for "Memories of El Monte. Frank Zappa took the song to Art Laboe, who loved it. Although, the track is credited to the Penguins featuring Cleve Duncan, and Zappa claimed it was recorded by "a bunch of guys from the car wash," it was actually sung by Cleve Duncan of the Penguins, backed by the Viceroys. The song reminisces about dances at the El Monte Legion Stadium.
