Death Of An Angel – Donald Woods & Vel-Aires – Creepy Doowop 45

Posted by Robert Rodriguez on: October 28 2010

Death Of An Angel - Donald Woods & Vel-Aires - Creepy Doowop 45. Looking for a creepy, haunting, weeping, screaming, somber record for your Halloween party? It's all in here on this masterful tale of a man losing his love. This is one of my all time favorite records! I learned it when I was about 14 and I used to play this one 5 times in a row. I was sucked into the story as soon as the haunting sax, somber vocals, the death march drum to the bass voice with his hypnotic "da doom" then the wallowing weep. A weepy masterpiece!
