The original post is (25th June 2008) is here:
We've had a few re-up requests for this one - Joan's contribution of the 1959 Jubilee LP "The Paragons Meet The Jesters." The sides contained herein were originally released on Winley and its subsidiary Cyclone between February 1957 and June 1958. Winley was owned by Paul Winley and was distributed through Jubilee owner Jerry Blaine's Cosnat company, hence the use of these sides on a Jubilee LP.
This was the first of a series of five Jubilee compilations of doo wop / vocal group tracks. The other titles in the series were: "Cadillacs Meet the Orioles", "Whoppers!", "Boppin'", and "Rumble." All the album covers featured cheesy photographs of models posing as biker / juvenile delinquent types complete with leather jackets and even on occasion baseball bats. Hilariously and unintentionally (?) camp.
For the full lowdown on these groups see Marv Goldberg's site:
I think Joan "reconstructed" these LPs from original 45 rpm singles which were pretty scratched. In fact there's a skip on the first track, but, hey, that's all part of the Be Bop Wino lo-fi aural experience.
With thanks to Joan K for the sounds and scans.
