Thanks once more to Joan for the second in the series of Jubilee doowop compilation LPs released in 1959. These sides, which were originally issued in 1956 and 1957, were gathered from the Bobby Robinson group of labels. The Channels and Continentals sides were originally released on Whirlin' Disc, a label co-owned by Bobby Robinson and Jubilee owner Jerry Blaine. They were subsequently re-released as singles on the Port label between 1959 and 1961. The Bop-Chords and Love-Notes sides were originally released in 1956-57 on Holiday, a label owned by Bobby Robinson's brother Danny.
There are occasional clicks and pops and even a skip on these vintage vinyl sides.
Marv Goldberg's article on The Continentals is here:
It includes juicy details on who was backing The Continentals at their recording sessions. Mickey Baker, King Curtis, Sam "The Man" Taylor are names to whet the appetite of any R&B fan.
Marv Goldberg's article on The Love-Notes / The Ivories is here:
More juicy details, this time about the Love-Notes getting rushed on to an Apollo show as "United" / "Tonight" started to climb the charts. Also on the bill of that show were Chuck Willis, Mickey & Sylvia, Big Maybelle and Solomon Burke among others!
