The El Dorados - Low Mileage - High Octane

Founded in 1952 by pupils of Chicago’s Englewood High as the Five Stars, this group changed its name to the El Dorados in 1953. They signed for VeeJay Records in 1954 and in 1955 recorded the smash hit (both R&B and Pop) “At My Front Door”. The group continued to record for VeeJay until 1957, but without any more chart success. A short lived new line up made further recordings for VeeJay in 1958 but again success remained elusive.

This 1984 Solid Smoke LP compiles El Dorados sides recorded between 1954 and 1957 and includes two unissued sides – “Lord Knows I Tried” and “Love Of My Own”.

Ripped from vinyl at 320 kbps. Password = greaseyspoon
