Re-up of the third in the series of five compilation LPs of vocal group tracks which were released on Jubilee in 1959 / 1960. It's an interesting mix of late 1940s / early 1950s tracks by the Orioles, the group which really established Jubilee as a label with their 1948 hit "It's Too Soon To Know", and The Cadillacs, Jubilee's big selling group of the mid 1950s.
There is quite a lot of popping and crackling on these well worn tracks!

The history of the Cadillacs is told in a two part article on J.C. Marion's website here:
The go-to place for the story of the Orioles is Marv Goldberg's site where there is a monumental four part article. The whole story starts here:
I originally posted on the Orioles way back in September 2007, in the very earliest days of the blog. That post was subsequently rewritten and the LP, "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me" was re-uploaded with improved scans. The newer download links have in their turn become dead, but now they have been replaced with an all new live link.
The original post with new link, loads of info and pictures is here:

More of these Jubilee comps are in the pipeline!
