    Monotones "Book of Love" 45 (Mascot 3003, 1957). What Rock and Roller doesn't get revved by the opening, "Oh, I wonder wonder who... ba-dooooh, who! Who wrote the book of love?" It's one of the all-time great Rockin' Doo-Wop tunes (if that's not a category, it should be!). This is the original small-label release from 1957. The record didn't take off until early 1958, when it got released on the larger Argo label, eventually peaking at #5 on Billboard's Hot 100. This version's quite rare. Condition: VG-EX 6. From the Rockin' Rev Collection.
