"Bop Doo-Wop" is the seventh album released by The Manhattan Transfer in 1985 on the Atlantic records label. Six of the ten tracks on Bob Doo-Wopp are live performances.

The album contained the song "Route 66" which originally appeared on the soundtrack to the Burt Reynolds' film Sharky's Machine.

The album is essentially a "live" album (6 tracks) with some additional studio cuts (4 tracks). Five tracks were recorded live at the Nakano Sun Plaza in Japan in November, 1983. The other live cut, "Duke of Dubuque", was recorded for the Evening at Pops series on PBS. The song "Safronia B" was recorded in Sydney, Australia in December, 1983. The other three songs were recorded in New York.


This album another Billboard Magazine Hot 100 single in "Baby Come Back To Me (The Morse Code Of Love)" which reached #83 on the chart. The song was dedicated to The Capris (an Italian vocal group from Queens) who released the single "There's A Moon Out Tonight" in 1960.


"Route 66" hit the Billboard Magazine Hot 100 in 1982, reaching #78, and earned the group another Grammy Award in the category of "Best Jazz Vocal Performance, Duo or Group."
