Here's another contribution from Marv -the first ever LP released by Ember (a co-label of Herald) in December 1957, and not surprisingly it's a collection of their best selling vocal group of the time, The Five Satins, whose "I'll Remember (In The Still Of The Night)" was not only a big R&B hit but also a pop hit in the late summer / early autumn of 1956. A year later the group had another major R&B / pop hit with "To The Aisle."
The LP contains both sides of the first five singles by The Five Satins on Ember plus four additional sides to give what was then a whopping 14 tracks. Plenty of bang for your buck! Some of the tracks have a very professional production while others have what may be called a rather more primitive sound. I prefer the el primitivo approach!
There's no Unca Marvy link for the background on this particular vocal group but here's a couple of links for you to peruse -
Original Single Issues:
In The Still Of The Nite / The Jones Girl - Standord XEP-200 - April 1956. The disc was leased to Ember / Herald for national distribution and issued in June 1956 as "I'll Remember (In The Still Of The Nite)" / "The Jones Girl" (Ember E-1005). Subsequent Ember repressings reverted to the Standord title "In The Still Of The Nite."
