 Notes & Reviews
2008 release, an absolute must-have for doo-wop and vocal group collectors! The Cues recorded the original version of Bill Haley's 'Burn That Candle' and recorded the Hot 100 classic 'Why'. of all the talented vocal groups populating the mid-1950s New York R&B scene, perhaps none were on as many recordings as The Cues even if few outside the industry knew about it. The versatile vocal quintet provided background harmonies for Ruth Brown, LaVern Baker, Ivory Joe Hunter, and Big Joe Turner. Assembled by legendary Atlantic Records A&R man Jesse Stone in 1954, The Cues made a series of 1954-1956 singles under their own name that constitute Why, Bear Family's exhaustive overview of the group's career. 28 tracks.
