DustyRose's StarDust Melodiez Vol. 6

I hope you all enjoy Vol. 6 of my Stardust Melodiez Series, As you all know these series are full of some great Doo-Wop ballads & maybe a pinch of soul from time to time.  I try to find some rare songs & that takes time as I want to be sure none of these were used in the last past year or two which brings me to my next point. From here on in I will not be so heavy on the 411's on these songs and artist/groups as much as I enjoyed researching the background it's just too time consuming and feel that I may be putting too much work into my comps compared to the lack of comments.  I know there are a handful of you that enjoyed reading the background but I must end it...for the last past year or so I have been slacking for a reason, so my head isn't in it anyway, I want to keep putting these comps together and this way I can share more comps from now on but with less work, So for those in the past that have left their comments I want to thank you very much (I know who you are)  therefore I present Stardust Melodiez Vol. 6 but my request for a password still soon as I see your comment with your E-MAIL address I will ship out the password asap but come on back & let me know how you liked it or not!                                                                   
                    Thank you & Enjoy !  @>--;-- Rose

A little background on some of these tracks.....

01. The Five Boroughs - Stardust
1991 - Classic Artists Records 
A group of transplanted New Yorkers who formed a quintet in South Florida in 1986 with an eye to reviving the vocal harmony group tradition from the 1950s and 1960s,
02. El Juans - Golden Teardrops
1958 Sundown Label  208 A Side- Sundown Label from Gary, Indiana
Thank You Soulman for turning me on to this treasure!
03. The Dialtones - Love Is Forever
1966 Swan Prev. Unreleased  (Queens, New-York) 
The group Randy and the Rainbows evolved from The Dialtones, which in 1959 included Randy (Dom) Safuto and Frank Safuto, Rosalie Calindo, and Eddie Scalla, the Safutos' cousin. After recording during the early '60s for Goldisc the Safutos hooked up with three other neighborhood singers in 1962 to become Randy & the Rainbows.
04. The Jades - Tell Me Pretty Baby
1959  -  Christy
05. The DuMauriers - Baby, I Love You
1957  -  Fury Records
06. The Emblems - Would You Still Be Mine
1962 (Bayfront 107) 
07. The Cruisers - Crying Over You
1960 - V-Tone-213
The Cruisers from Philadelphia, PA never had a significant record. Patterning themselves after the Harptones, group leader Gene Williams, Randy Hamilton, Paul Long, and McKinley Anthony began recording on V-Tone Records. The deal resulted in two single releases in 1960: "Miss Fine" b/w "If I Knew," and "Don't Tease Me" b/w "Crying Over You;" the latter got pegged for mass distribution two years later by Guyden Records only to die a second time. Five years passed before their next deal in 1967 with Gamble Records, who were charting with the Intruders' records. "I Need You So" b/w "Take A Chance," reeked with sentiment but despite its charm didn't sell, and the Cruisers languished for nearly three years before their final release. Bunny Sigler brought the Cruisers' doo-wop skills out the closet with "Picture Us" b/w "Mink and Sable Mable," but Gamble Records only seem able to get hits on Sonny & the Intruders; while others including Ruth McFadden, the Jaggerz, the Futures, the Butlers, and the Epsilons always came up empty. Sigler later cut a solo version of "Picture Us" on Philadelphia International Records, and the Cruisers went on with their lives.
08. The Perfections - No More Love For You
1965  - Pam-O 101
09.The Hi Tensions - Ebbing Of The Tide
1963  - Milestone  aka The Angels from Los Angeles
The Hi Tensions were led by Bobby Parker, a fine R&B singer who  had been with the Chanteclairs on Lyric. Bobby met the other Hi Tensions through Roy Haggins who became the Baritone for the group, in 1960. The rest of the group included David Cook, the tenor, Jack Johnson, the Bass and Jonathan "Sonny" Allen who sang baritone & tenor.
10. The Willows - Now That I Have You
1961  -  Four Star  aka The Five Willows
The Willows bloomed in 1950 from Harlem as the Dovers: Richie Davis, John Steele, Ralph Martin, Joe Martin (twins), and Bobby Robinson. Tony Middleton replaced Robinson who left in 1952 to open a record shop on 125th Street that became Fury Records.The Dovers built a reputation battling other groups; they often practiced with Gloria Lynne's group, the Delltones; Lynne later recorded on Premium with the Wheels before going solo.Pete and Goldie Doraine became their managers and financed the groups' 1953 debut, "Love Bells," on their own Pee Dee label, as the Five Willows.After two flops on Herald in 1954, they hit as the Willows (dropping the "Five" for booking purposes) on Melba in 1956 with "Church Bells May Ring," featuring Neil Sedaka on chimes. It blasted to number 11 R&B but died at number 62 pop due to the Diamonds' number 14 pop cover. The Cadets and Sunny Gale also played the cover game.
11. Richard Blandon & The Dubs - Wherever You Are
1990 - Classic atist From Harlem, New-York, AKA Five Wings,The Scale-Tones aka The Marvels.  Richard Blandon continued on with his version of the Dubs. Kirk Harris remained, and Jay McKnight was an alternate lead singer (fronting all the non-Dubs numbers they did). By late 1990, Danny Foy had replaced Kirk Harris, and the trio of Blandon, McKnight, and Foy recorded "Wherever You Are" for Classic Artists, released in December of that year. This group was self-contained, having its own band, including Joe Owens on piano (they also had sax, bongos, bass, guitar, and drums). They continued on until Blandon's death in December 1991, when his brother, Darryll, took over the lead. At a February 1992 show, the Dubs were: Darryll Blandon, Jay McKnight, Danny Foy, and Doretha Gills.
12. The Superbs - He Broke A Young Girls Heart [Ureleased Version] 
1966 - Dore  
from California, USA, were one of the best mid-60s sweet-soul groups to meld doo-wop harmonies into the sound of soul. The members were Eleanor ‘Punkin’ Green’ (lead), Walter White, Bobby Swain, Gordy Harmon and Ronny Cook. Green possessed a soprano lead that sounded much like a male falsetto and it was an era when falsetto-led groups were regularly on the charts. After their first record in 1964 on Lew Bedell’s Dore label, ‘Storybook Of Love’, flopped, Harmon left to form the Whispers (the Whispers were the Superbs’ labelmates and were likewise outstanding in merging doo-wop with soul). The next record, ‘Baby Baby All The Time’, with its relaxed lope, proved a success in 1964. Similar-sounding and equally appealing follow-ups were ‘Sad Sad Day’ (1964) and ‘Baby’s Gone Away’ (1965). Around this time Swain left the group to form the Entertainers Four, who also recorded for Dore. He was replaced by Lawrence Randall. Green left in 1966 to get married and the group regrouped, but the magic was gone and by the 70s the group had broken up. Lawrence Randall formed a new Superbs group in the mid-80s to play on the southern California revival circuit.
13. The Wrens - Reckless
1955 - Recorded Circa 
14. The Sweethearts - What Did I Do
1963 - Brunswick, AKA Alpha Angels, Philadelphia Angels
Members: Barbara Ingram, Carla Benson, Evette Benton
15. The Starglows - Let's Be Lovers
1963 - Atco    originally The Flamingos From Chicago, Illinois
After The Flamingos, Terry formed his own group called Terry Johnson & The Modern Flamingos. When Nate Nelson left The Flamingos, he joined forces with Terry. They recorded under the name THE STARGLOWS. They co-wrote and sang “Let’s Be Lovers” on the Atco Label, 
16. The Danleers - I Really Love You
1958  - Mercury 
17. The Velours - That's What Girls Are Made For
1985 - Clifton Lost Tapes  1950s
Formed 1956 in Brooklyn, NY. Disbanded 1961
The Velours were originally from the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn and although they never scored any major chart hits, they are fondly remembered for their variety of vocal group romantic ballads, novelty numbers, and up-tempo jump and rockin' songs. Ronnie I of UGHA brought back this great group among others through the 80's  & 90's
18. Nicky Addeo & The Darchaes  - You Can Depend On Me
1964  - Melody 1417
19. The Flamingos - Every Time I Think Of You

RossyBoy's Over And Out

A Black Friday - unlucky for some ! I'm sorry to say that this is my very last solo compilation. It's been more than 5 years since the first one I ever put together, Prime Cuts, in early May 2009 on the original TVD blog. I've had a couple of false endings before, but this really is it.

I loved sharing my taste over the past five years and it never seemed like hard work. Here's the last comp. It's the usual eclectic mix you may have come to expect by now - a bumper bundle of my favorites. In the past I've deliberately left out label, year, album info as the intention was that, if you found something of interest, you would do some further research yourself. But, as a parting gift, all the sources are detailed this time. I hope you enjoy it. RossyBoy
