Looking for an echo is a continual search for all self-respecting doo woppers. Check out the tiling in the bathroom. Hear that sound come back at you! Crowd the band into that tiny space and Digital Surround Sound just doesn't compare. Check out subway tunnels or failing all of those, stick your head in a bucket and sing. The title track on this CD tells a tale of the search for that perfect echo that began in Brighton way back in 1972 as Rocky Sharpe & the Razors. The Razors' experience and producer Mike Vernon's sympathetic ear mixed the Replays a sound that brings vitality to doo wop, rock'n'roll classics and some rockin' new songs.

Rocky Sharp & The Replays sings "Looking For An Echo" from their album Shout Shout. I think that this is the best version of this song. Maybe because I heard their version before the others.
