THE RAVENS - "COUNT EVERY STAR" (1950)

LYRICS

The Ravens formed in New York in 1945 were an early R&B vocal group that sang a wide range of material.There were one of the first groups to feature a bass voice as a lead, probably the first to feature a lead falsetto and the first to choreograph their act. With a smooth harmony like the Mills Brothers recorded for Hub Records "My Sugar Is So Refined" in 1946. Shortly thereafter, Maithe Marshall, whose lead falsetto became the group's trademark joined The Ravens. Their first big hits "write Me A letter and "Write Me A Letter" were recorded in 1947. "White Christmas" was a major hit in 1948. The groups next hit was "I Don't Have To Ride No More" in 1950. "Count Every Star" of the same year,with full range vocal backing highlighted by wordless vocal bass lines and high falsetto constitute the virtual definition of doo wop. 1952 to saw their last hit "Rock Me All Night".

Jimmy "Ricky" Ricks & The Ravens with "Ol' Man River" One of their first early hits from National Records, right when they switched from "Hub" Records, courtesy of National Records back in 1947. Please Enjoy! The Ravens were an American R&B vocal group, formed in 1946 by Jimmy Ricks and Warren Suttles. They were one of the most successful and most influential vocal quartets of the period, and had several hits on the R&B chart in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Although they were beginning to pick up a following at clubs and theaters, their first National release, issued in April 1947, only days after it was recorded, wasn't a hit. This was the oddball "Mahzel" (Hebrew for "luck"), with Leonard, Ricky, and Maithe sharing lead. It was backed with "For You" (featuring Ricky). On May 2, the Ravens opened at the Apollo Theater, sharing the stage with superstar Cab Calloway. The next release, in June 1947, was a natural for Ricks: Oscar Hammerstein and Jerome Kern's 1927 masterpiece, "Ol' Man River" (backed with Maithe's first stunning ballad, "Would You Believe Me"). "Ol' Man River" became the Ravens' first chart hit, rising to #10 (R&B). July found the Ravens into some antics. Taking advantage of the new "flying saucer" craze (that had started in June), the Ravens were almost arrested for sailing copies of "Ol' Man River" off NY's George Washington Bridge into the Hudson River. While Leonard confirmed that the event actually took place, the article went on to say that the only thing that saved the Ravens from being hustled off to jail was the timely intervention of Herb Abramson (a&r man for National Records, in one of his last acts before he quit to form Atlantic with Ahmet Ertegun) and Ben Bart. Abramson was quick to take the blame, calling it just a publicity stunt. Of course, the Ravens had to sing for the police to establish their identity beyond question.

The Ravens - Rock Me Al Night Long (1952)

LYRICS

US R&B Charts No. 4 (20.09.1952) 8 Weeks The Ravens were an American R&B vocal group, formed in 1946 by Jimmy Ricks and Warren Suttles. They were one of the most successful and most influential vocal quartets of the period, and had several hits on the R&B chart in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Jimmy "Ricky" Ricks was born in Adrian, Georgia, later moving to Jacksonville, Florida. During World War II, he moved to New York City, where he worked as a waiter in Harlem and met Warren "Birdland" Suttles, from Fairfield, Alabama. In early 1946, they decided to form a vocal group and recruited Leonard "Zeke" Puzey, who had recently won a talent contest at the Apollo Theater, and Ollie Jones. They found a manager, Ben Bart, and an accompanist, Howard Biggs, and made their first recordings for Bart's small Hub record label. They called themselves the Ravens, and so initiated the trend for vocal groups to name themselves after birds - groups who later followed included The Orioles, The Crows, The Larks, The Robins and The Penguins. Although the group were strongly influenced by The Ink Spots, The Delta Rhythm Boys and The Mills Brothers, they used Ricks' bass voice, rather than a more conventional tenor, as the lead on many of their recordings, and this became their trademark style. Their material was also more varied, including elements of pop, jazz, R&B, and gospel styles. After their initial single, "Honey", Jones left the group and was replaced by Maithe Marshall. The contrast between Ricks' bass voice and Marshall's tenor became integral to their success. In 1947 the Ravens left the Hub label to join National Records, and had immediate hits on what was called at the time the "race records" chart with a version of "Ol' Man River" (from the musical Show Boat) and "Write Me A Letter", which rose to no. 5 on the "race" chart and crossed over to the pop chart.Their run of successes on what came to be known as the R&B chart continued through to early 1950, with the basic line-up of Ricks, Suttles, Puzey, and Marshall essentially remaining together for several years. Their version of "Count Every Star" (1950) was later used in the film Revolutionary Road. The Ravens primarily existed to showcase bass singer Ricks; in this they were successful, such that Ricks' voice became the standard against which every rhythm and blues bass was measured for the next generation. Although the group had relatively few chart hits, they were popular in concert, commanding a fee of $2,000 dollars a night. The group recorded for Columbia Records and its subsidiary OKeh in 1950, before moving to the Mercury label. In 1951 Marshall and Puzey both left; Joe Van Loan became a long-term replacement for Marshall as lead tenor, and there were various other shorter-term group members. The group had its final hit on the R&B chart in late 1952, when "Rock Me All Night Long" rose to no. 4, the highest position the group reached in their career. In 1953 they moved to the Jubilee label, but with the rise of rock and roll their style became increasingly unfashionable. After several earlier breaks from the group, Suttles left for the final time in 1954. Ricks left for a solo career in 1956. The Ravens waren eine Rhythm-'n'-Blues-Vokalgruppe, die zu den Pionieren des Doo Wop gehörte. Die Gruppe wurde 1945 von Jimmy Ricks und Warren Suttles gegründet. Unbestrittener Star der Gruppe war Jimmy "Ricky" Ricks, dessen Bassgesang zum Maßstab für die nachfolgenden Doo-Wop-Basssänger wurde. Zu den ersten Mitgliedern gehörten neben Ricks und dem Bariton Suttles noch der Falsetto-Tenor Maithe Marshall sowie der Tenor Ollie Jones, der später durch Leonard Puzey ersetzt wurde. Ihre erste Single brachten sie bei dem kleinen Plattenlabel Hub Records im Juli 1946 unter dem Titel Honey heraus. Im April 1947 wechselten sie zu National Records, wo sie von Herb Abramson produziert wurden. Erste Platte hier war im Dezember 1947 Write Me A Letter, die einen Rang 5 der Rhythm & Blues-Hitparade erreichen konnte und sich zu einem der ersten Crossover-Hits entwickelte, als sie bis auf Rang 24 der Pop-Charts gelangte. Es folgte im Juni 1947 eine rhythmische Coverversion vom Standard Ol’ Man River, das etwa zwei Millionen Mal verkauft wurde[1], jedoch nur bis auf Rang 10 der R&B-Charts vordrang. Eine Reihe weiterer Standards wurden am 11. September 1947 mit Summertime oder September Song eingespielt. Ab September 1952 brachten sie keine Single mehr in die Hitparaden, obwohl sie bis Juni 1966 noch Platten aufnahmen. Ihr letztes Label zu jener Zeit war Jubilee Records, die von Herb Abramson im Mai 1946 gegründet worden waren. 1956 verließ Ricks die Ravens und begann eine Solokarriere. Anfang der 1970er sang er im Orchester von Count Basie. Er starb am 2. Juli 1974 im Alter von 50 Jahren. Die Ravens wurden 1998 in die Vocal Group Hall of Fame aufgenommen.

Jimmy "Ricky" Ricks & The Ravens with the "B" side of "September Song," "Once In A While" from 1948. Please Enjoy! The Ravens were an American R&B vocal group, formed in 1946 by Jimmy Ricks and Warren Suttles. They were one of the most successful and most influential vocal quartets of the period, and had several hits on the R&B chart in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Jimmy "Ricky" Ricks was born in Adrian, Georgia, later moving to Jacksonville, Florida. During World War II, he moved to New York City, where he worked as a waiter in Harlem and met Warren "Birdland" Suttles, from Fairfield, Alabama. In early 1946, they decided to form a vocal group and recruited Leonard "Zeke" Puzey, who had recently won a talent contest at the Apollo Theater, and Henry Oliver "Ollie" Jones. They found a manager, Ben Bart, and an accompanist, Howard Biggs, and made their first recordings for Bart's small Hub record label. They called themselves the Ravens, and so initiated the trend for vocal groups to name themselves after birds groups who later followed included The Orioles, The Crows, The Larks, The Robins and The Penguins. Although the group were strongly influenced by The Ink Spots, The Delta Rhythm Boys and The Mills Brothers, they used Ricks' bass voice, rather than a more conventional tenor, as the lead on many of their recordings, and this became their trademark style. Their material was also more varied, including elements of pop, jazz, R&B, and gospel styles. The next three National sides were certainly listenable but did not make substantial headway on the sales charts. "Searching For Love" / "For You" on #9039; "Fool That I Am" / "Be I Bumble" on #9040; and "Together" / "There's No You" on #9042. During the summer of 1948 The Ravens recording of "Send For Me If You Need Me" / "Until The Real Thing Comes Along" made the national R & B charts with both sides getting good airplay. In the midst of this new popularity for the group King Records re-released "Bye Bye Baby Blues" to good sales and airplay. The group was now a viable R & B attraction and began to make national appearances. The Ravens version of "September Song" was another winner for National (#9053) and the flip featured a nice version of the swing era standard "Once In A While" with Maithe Marshall excelling on lead on both sides. In 1953 they moved to the Jubilee label, but with the rise of rock and roll their style became increasingly unfashionable. After several earlier breaks from the group, Suttles left for the final time in 1954. Ricks left for a solo career in 1956. After his departure, the group was led by Joe Van Loan, who at one point brought his brothers Paul and James into the group; however, the group finally disbanded in 1958. The Ravens were inducted into The Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1998. In 2006, Suttles accepted the Harlem Jazz & Music Festival 2006 Rhythm & Blues award on the group's behalf. "Green Eyes" is a popular song, originally written in Spanish under the title "Aquellos Ojos Verdes" ("Those Green Eyes") by Adolfo Utrera and Nilo Menéndez, 1929.

The Ravens were an American R&B vocal group, formed in 1946 by Jimmy Ricks and Warren Suttles. They were one of the most successful and most influential vocal quartets of the period, and had several hits on the R&B chart in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Jimmy "Ricky" Ricks was born in Adrian, Georgia, later moving to Jacksonville, Florida. During World War II, he moved to New York City, where he worked as a waiter in Harlem and met Warren "Birdland" Suttles, from Fairfield, Alabama. In early 1946, they decided to form a vocal group and recruited Leonard "Zeke" Puzey, who had recently won a talent contest at the Apollo Theater, and Henry Oliver "Ollie" Jones. They found a manager, Ben Bart, and an accompanist, Howard Biggs, and made their first recordings for Bart's small Hub record label. They called themselves the Ravens, and so initiated the trend for vocal groups to name themselves after birds groups who later followed included The Orioles, The Crows, The Larks, The Robins and The Penguins. Although the group were strongly influenced by The Ink Spots, The Delta Rhythm Boys and The Mills Brothers, they used Ricks' bass voice, rather than a more conventional tenor, as the lead on many of their recordings, and this became their trademark style. Their material was also more varied, including elements of pop, jazz, R&B, and gospel styles. In 1953 they moved to the Jubilee label, but with the rise of rock and roll their style became increasingly unfashionable. After several earlier breaks from the group, Suttles left for the final time in 1954. Ricks left for a solo career in 1956. After his departure, the group was led by Joe Van Loan, who at one point brought his brothers Paul and James into the group; however, the group finally disbanded in 1958. Ricks recorded as a solo singer without notable success for a number of labels, including Atlantic where he also recorded with LaVern Baker and Little Esther. In 1971, he and Suttles temporarily revived the Ravens, with additional members Gregory Carroll and Jimmy Breedlove. At the time of his death, at the age of 49 in 1974, he was the vocalist for the Count Basie orchestra. Suttles, Puzey and Marshall also appeared together as the Ravens, in 1974. The Ravens were inducted into The Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1998. In 2006, Suttles accepted the Harlem Jazz & Music Festival 2006 Rhythm & Blues award on the group's behalf.

They were one of the most successful and most influential vocal quartets of the period, and had several hits on the R&B chart in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Although they were beginning to pick up a following at clubs and theaters, their first National release, issued in April 1947, only days after it was recorded, wasn't a hit. This was the oddball "Mahzel" (Hebrew for "luck"), with Leonard, Ricky, and Maithe sharing lead. It was backed with "For You" (featuring Ricky). On May 2, the Ravens opened at the Apollo Theater, sharing the stage with superstar Cab Calloway. The next release, in June 1947, was a natural for Ricks: Oscar Hammerstein and Jerome Kern's 1927 masterpiece, "Ol' Man River" (backed with Maithe's first stunning ballad, "Would You Believe Me"). "Ol' Man River" became the Ravens' first chart hit, rising to #10 (R&B). July found the Ravens into some antics. Taking advantage of the new "flying saucer" craze (that had started in June), the Ravens were almost arrested for sailing copies of "Ol' Man River" off NY's George Washington Bridge into the Hudson River. While Leonard confirmed that the event actually took place, the article went on to say that the only thing that saved the Ravens from being hustled off to jail was the timely intervention of Herb Abramson (a&r man for National Records, in one of his last acts before he quit to form Atlantic with Ahmet Ertegun) and Ben Bart. Abramson was quick to take the blame, calling it just a publicity stunt. Of course, the Ravens had to sing for the police to establish their identity beyond question.

Jimmy Ricks & the Ravens - Green Eyes

LYRICS

The Ravens were an R&B vocal group. They were formed in 1945 by Jimmy Ricks and Warren Suttles. They were structurally similar to The Ink Spots, especially in their combination of high tenor (Maithe Marshall) and deep bass (Ricks), but their material was more varied, including elements of pop, jazz, R&B, and gospel styles. Although they had excellent lead tenors (Maithe Marshall, and later, Joe Van Loan), the Ravens primarily existed to showcase bass singer Jimmy "Ricky" Ricks. In this, they were so successful, that Ricks' voice became the standard against which every rhythm and blues bass was measured for the next generation. It is not an exaggeration to say that every aspiring rhythm and blues singer with a low voice wanted to sound like Ricks. His voice was so deep and rich, however, that few even came close; no one surpassed him. In spite of this, the Ravens had few chart hits, although they were very popular at appearances. The group's greatest successes were in the late 1940s, including covers of "Ol' Man River" (1947) and "Count Every Star" (1950). They had continued success into the 1950s, but Suttles left the group in 1954 and Ricks in 1955. The group continued on for some time thereafter, with various changes in personnel, but it was never as successful or influential as before. Ricks went on to a solo career, and was the vocalist for the Count Basie orchestra. He died on July 2, 1974. The Ravens were inducted into The Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1998.

The next three National sides were certainly listenable but did not make substantial headway on the sales charts. "Searching For Love" / "For You" on #9039; "Fool That I Am" / "Be I Bumble" on #9040; and "Together" / "There's No You" on #9042. During the summer of 1948 The Ravens recording of "Send For Me If You Need Me" / "Until The Real Thing Comes Along" made the national R & B charts with both sides getting good airplay. In the midst of this new popularity for the group King Records re-released "Bye Bye Baby Blues" to good sales and airplay. The group was now a viable R & B attraction and began to make national appearances. The Ravens version of "September Song" was another winner for National (#9053) and the flip featured a nice version of the swing era standard "Once In A While" with Maithe Marshall excelling on lead on both sides. In 1953 they moved to the Jubilee label, but with the rise of rock and roll their style became increasingly unfashionable. After several earlier breaks from the group, Suttles left for the final time in 1954. Ricks left for a solo career in 1956.

The Ravens - Write Me A Letter (1948)

LYRICS

US R&B-Charts:Bi, 5 (10.01.1948) 12 Weeks The Ravens were an American R&B vocal group, formed in 1946 by Jimmy Ricks and Warren Suttles. They were one of the most successful and most influential vocal quartets of the period, and had several hits on the R&B chart in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Jimmy "Ricky" Ricks was born in Adrian, Georgia, later moving to Jacksonville, Florida. During World War II, he moved to New York City, where he worked as a waiter in Harlem and met Warren "Birdland" Suttles, from Fairfield, Alabama. In early 1946, they decided to form a vocal group and recruited Leonard "Zeke" Puzey, who had recently won a talent contest at the Apollo Theater, and Ollie Jones. They found a manager, Ben Bart, and an accompanist, Howard Biggs, and made their first recordings for Bart's small Hub record label. They called themselves the Ravens, and so initiated the trend for vocal groups to name themselves after birds - groups who later followed included The Orioles, The Crows, The Larks, The Robins and The Penguins. Although the group were strongly influenced by The Ink Spots, The Delta Rhythm Boys and The Mills Brothers, they used Ricks' bass voice, rather than a more conventional tenor, as the lead on many of their recordings, and this became their trademark style. Their material was also more varied, including elements of pop, jazz, R&B, and gospel styles. After their initial single, "Honey", Jones left the group and was replaced by Maithe Marshall. The contrast between Ricks' bass voice and Marshall's tenor became integral to their success. In 1947 the Ravens left the Hub label to join National Records, and had immediate hits on what was called at the time the "race records" chart with a version of "Ol' Man River" (from the musical Show Boat) and "Write Me A Letter", which rose to no. 5 on the "race" chart and crossed over to the pop chart.Their run of successes on what came to be known as the R&B chart continued through to early 1950, with the basic line-up of Ricks, Suttles, Puzey, and Marshall essentially remaining together for several years. Their version of "Count Every Star" (1950) was later used in the film Revolutionary Road. The Ravens primarily existed to showcase bass singer Ricks; in this they were successful, such that Ricks' voice became the standard against which every rhythm and blues bass was measured for the next generation. Although the group had relatively few chart hits, they were popular in concert, commanding a fee of $2,000 dollars a night. The group recorded for Columbia Records and its subsidiary OKeh in 1950, before moving to the Mercury label. In 1951 Marshall and Puzey both left; Joe Van Loan became a long-term replacement for Marshall as lead tenor, and there were various other shorter-term group members. The group had its final hit on the R&B chart in late 1952, when "Rock Me All Night Long" rose to no. 4, the highest position the group reached in their career. In 1953 they moved to the Jubilee label, but with the rise of rock and roll their style became increasingly unfashionable. After several earlier breaks from the group, Suttles left for the final time in 1954. Ricks left for a solo career in 1956. The Ravens waren eine Rhythm-'n'-Blues-Vokalgruppe, die zu den Pionieren des Doo Wop gehörte. Die Gruppe wurde 1945 von Jimmy Ricks und Warren Suttles gegründet. Unbestrittener Star der Gruppe war Jimmy "Ricky" Ricks, dessen Bassgesang zum Maßstab für die nachfolgenden Doo-Wop-Basssänger wurde. Zu den ersten Mitgliedern gehörten neben Ricks und dem Bariton Suttles noch der Falsetto-Tenor Maithe Marshall sowie der Tenor Ollie Jones, der später durch Leonard Puzey ersetzt wurde. Ihre erste Single brachten sie bei dem kleinen Plattenlabel Hub Records im Juli 1946 unter dem Titel Honey heraus. Im April 1947 wechselten sie zu National Records, wo sie von Herb Abramson produziert wurden. Erste Platte hier war im Dezember 1947 Write Me A Letter, die einen Rang 5 der Rhythm & Blues-Hitparade erreichen konnte und sich zu einem der ersten Crossover-Hits entwickelte, als sie bis auf Rang 24 der Pop-Charts gelangte. Es folgte im Juni 1947 eine rhythmische Coverversion vom Standard Ol’ Man River, das etwa zwei Millionen Mal verkauft wurde[1], jedoch nur bis auf Rang 10 der R&B-Charts vordrang. Eine Reihe weiterer Standards wurden am 11. September 1947 mit Summertime oder September Song eingespielt. Ab September 1952 brachten sie keine Single mehr in die Hitparaden, obwohl sie bis Juni 1966 noch Platten aufnahmen. Ihr letztes Label zu jener Zeit war Jubilee Records, die von Herb Abramson im Mai 1946 gegründet worden waren. 1956 verließ Ricks die Ravens und begann eine Solokarriere. Anfang der 1970er sang er im Orchester von Count Basie. Er starb am 2. Juli 1974 im Alter von 50 Jahren. Die Ravens wurden 1998 in die Vocal Group Hall of Fame aufgenommen.

The Orioles - Baby Please Don't Go (1952)

LYRICS

US R&B Charts No. 8 (09.02.1952) 2 Weeks The Orioles were an American R&B group of the late 1940s and early 1950s, one of the earliest such vocal groups who established the basic pattern for the doo-wop sound. The Orioles are generally acknowledged as R&B's first vocal group. Baltimore natives, they blended rhythm with group harmonies. Dubbing themselves after Maryland’s state bird, the Orioles started the trend of bird groups (The Cardinals, The Crows, The Flamingos, The Larks, The Penguins, The Ravens, The Wrens, etc.). They brought their winning formula to their first charted hit "It’s Too Soon To Know"; a #1 record in November 1948, soon followed by the group’s second hit, "(It's Gonna Be a) Lonely Christmas", in December that same year. Original members Sonny Til (born Earlington Carl Tilghman, 18 August 1925, Baltimore, Maryland — died 9 December 1981, Washington, D.C.) (lead tenor) Alexander Sharp (born December 1919, Baltimore — died January 1970)[3] (high tenor) George Nelson (born 1925, Baltimore — died 1959)[4] (baritone) Johnny Reed (16 August 1923, Baltimore — 18 June 2005) (bass vocals and double bass) Tommy Gaither (born c.1919, Baltimore — died 5 November 1950, Baltimore) (guitar) Around 1947, Sonny Til sang regularly in amateur shows at the Avenue Cafe in Baltimore, where he met Nelson, Sharp and Gaither. They decided to form a group, calling themselves The Vibra-Naires, and aspiring songwriter Deborah Chessler became their manager. In April 1948 the group appeared on the Arthur Godfrey radio talent show in New York City, with Richard Williams as bass singer, but he was then replaced by Johnny Reed. The group won a recording deal with the "It's A Natural" record label, a subsidiary of Jubilee Records, and changed their name to The Orioles in honor of the state bird of Maryland and in emulation of another popular group, The Ravens. In July 1948, they recorded Chessler's song "It's Too Soon To Know", with Sonny Til taking lead vocals.[5] The record reportedly sold 30,000 copies in its first week, rising to #1 on the national R&B charts in November 1948, and leading to cover versions by artists such as the Ravens, Ella Fitzgerald and Dinah Washington. It was also one of the first "race" songs to cross over into mainstream markets, reaching # 13 on the pop charts. The Orioles war eine Rhythm 'n' Blues bzw. Doo-Wop-Band der späten 1940er und frühen 1950er Jahre, die als erste schwarze R&B-Gesangsgruppe überhaupt gilt. Die Band wurde 1947 in Baltimore von Sonny Til, Alexander Sharp, George Nelson, Johnny Reed und Tommy Gaither als The Vibranaires gegründet, zu einem Zeitpunkt, als alle Mitglieder der Gruppe noch Teenager waren. Schon bald wurde Songwriterin Deborah Chessler auf die Vibranaires aufmerksam und bot sich an, ihr Bandmanager zu werden. Sie war es auch, die für die Band einen Auftritt in Arthur Godfreys TV-Show Talent Scouts organisierte. Nachdem George Shearing sich geweigert hatte, die fünf Musiker zu produzieren, erschien als Alternative Jerry Blaine auf der Bildfläche, der die Vibranaires 1948 für sein eigenes Label It’s a Natural Records verpflichtete. Die Band nannte sich von nun an The Orioles und nahm im Juli 1948 den Chessler-Song It’s Soon to Know auf. Da Blaine der Name seines neuen It’s a Natural-Labels nicht gefiel, erschien die Single stattdessen auf Jubilee Records. It’s Soon to Know kam an die Spitze der R&B-Charts und sogar auf Platz 13 der Pop-Charts und war damit der erste Song einer schwarzen Band, der es bis in die Pop-Charts schaffte. Der Song gilt als die allererste Doo-Wop-Nummer, weil er alle stilbildenden Elemente dieses Musikgenres enthält. Im Dezember erschien dann (It’s Gonna Be a) Lonely Christmas, der Song kam immerhin in die R&B-Top 10. 1949 regnete es dann Hits für die Orioles. Tell Me So, A Kiss and a Rose, I Challenge Your Kiss, Forgive and Forget, eine Neuveröffentlichung von (It’s Gonna Be a) Lonely Christmas und What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve kamen alle in die R&B-Top 15. Doch das Folgejahr sollte ein schwarzes in der Bandgeschichte werden. Bei einem Autounfall kam Gaither ums Leben, Nelson und Reed wurden schwer verletzt. Nelson verließ die Band Ende des Jahres, Reed erholte sich wieder. Als Ersatz kamen Ralph Williams und Greg Carroll († 2013). Erst 1952 hatte die Band in der neuen Besetzung einen weiteren Hit. Baby Please Don’t Go machte eine Nummer 8 in den R&B-Charts. Im Juli 1953 veröffentlichte die Band dann ihren größten Hit mit Crying in the Chapel, später von Elvis Presley gecovert, hielt sich fünf Wochen lang in den R&B-Charts und scheiterte in den Pop-Charts nur knapp an den Top 10. Sonny Til organisierte später noch einige Umbesetzungen in der Band, ohne dass hieraus noch einmal Hitparaden-Erfolge entstanden. 1995 wurden die Orioles in der Kategorie „Early Influences“ in die Rock and Roll Hall of Fame aufgenommen.

The Original Stroll - February 1958

LYRICS

On a local television dance show in Idaho in February 1958, local teens dance to one of the biggest dance crazes out of the late-1950's called The Stroll, which originated from American Bandstand. This dance was performed in a line formed with boys on one side and girls on the other, creating an isle between them. The boy and girl in the front of the line would meet up in the middle, grab hands and stroll their way down the line, as the other kids in the line would move their way up to the front using the same dance steps that the couple moving down the line would use, but move from side to side instead. When the first couple made their way down the line, another couple would meet in the middle and stroll down the isle. Today, a new version of The Stroll is done in the form of a group line dance, but this is how it was done originally.

Out In The Cold Again - The Ravens With Dinah Washington

LYRICS

Recorded in October of 1951. The Ravens were the brainchild of Jimmy Ricks and baritone Warren "Birdland" Suttles, two Harlem waiters. They decided to go to the Evans Booking Agency and recruit two more singers to form a group in 1945. That visit brought them in contact with first tenor Ollie Jones and second tenor Leonard Puzey. The foursome decided to call themselves the Ravens, thus setting in motion what would become the first group-name craze, this one centered around birds. The members were fans of acts like the Delta Rhythm Boys and began practicing tunes like "Darktown Strutters' Ball." They met up with Howard Biggs, who became their musical arranger and wrote many of their original songs. The Ravens' first performance was in 1946 at the Club Baron on West 132nd Street and Lenox Avenue in Harlem. In the spring of 1946 the group joined Hub Records, and their first 78, "Honey," was issued on July 1. It was immediately followed by two more R&B singles, the better of which was a Dee Lippman-penned jump tune, "My Sugar Is So Refined." They opened with this song when they appeared at a benefit show with Nat King Cole and Stan Kenton at the legendary Apollo Theatre. Puzey sang lead, but when Ricks took over, his booming bass brought the house down. Ollie Jones then left, and a key addition came when Jimmy Ricks found falsetto tenor supreme Maithe Marshall tending bar and asked him to join. The group then rerecorded their Hub sides for King in 1946, who reissued them usually with an instrumental B side by the Three Chords. In 1947 they signed with National Records (owned by Albert Green) and began a series of releases that usually featured Ricks on a jump tune while Maithe Marshall and his crystal-clear falsetto led the group on the flip-side ballads. Marshall, consequently, labeled himself a B-side singer. He would be gratified to know that in the '60s, '70s, and '80s collectors literally fought to obtain Ravens records containing his B side. The National recordings started with the Howard Biggs-penned "Write Me a Letter." On December 13, 1947, it became the first R&B record to hit the national top 25, charting at number 24. As "Write Me" didn't hit the R&B charts until January 10, 1948, the Ravens, the world's first successful rhythm and blues group, actually charted Pop before they charted R&B, where "Write Me" reached number five Juke Box and number 10 Best Seller. But it was their second National single, a rhythmic version of the standard "Old Man River," full of Ricks's cavernous bass, that established the group and its sound internationally. It supposedly sold over two million copies though it only reached number 10 R&B. The years 1947 through '49 saw a number of beautiful ballads and bouncy pre-rock Ravens records on National, including standards like "Summertime," "September Sing," "Once in a While," "Until the Real Thing Comes Along," "Deep Purple," and "Count Every Star." Their sixth National single, "Send for Me If You Need Me," charted R&B on July 3rd, reaching number five Best Seller and Number seven Juke Box. In August one of the King recordings, "Bye Bye Baby Blues," reached number eight Best Seller and number 13 Juke Box. In September of 1948 they covered a new group's first release, the Orioles' "It's Too Soon to Know," but the rookie Orioles reached number one while the Ravens' single, a fine bluesy version, only reached number 11. The group began touring on what would become the legendary chitlin circuit, a series of theatre venues on the East Coast and in the Midwest in which thousands of rhythm and blues groups would perform. From the Uptown and Earl Theatres in Philadelphia, the Howard in Washington, the Royal in Baltimore, the Regal in Chicago, the Syria Mosque in Pittsburgh, and the State in Hartford to the crown jewel of theatres, the Apollo in New York, the Ravens blazed a trail for thousands of vocal groups. In November 1948 National issued the group's incredible rhythm version of "White Christmas" (#9 Juke Box, #14 Best Seller), setting the standard for the 1954 version by THE DRIFTERS (an almost note-for-note copy) that became the rock and roll standard. "White Christmas's" flip was an equally thrilling ballad version of "Silent Night." In 1949 "Ricky's Blues" reached number eight on the Juke Box R&B lists on June 11th as well as number 13 Best Seller. In February of 1950, "I Don't Have to Ride No More" became their last National charter at number nine Best Seller, number 13 Juke Box. During 1950 Louis Heyward took the baritone part as Suttles took one of his frequent sabbaticals (previously replaced by Joe Medlin -- later a national promo exec for Atlantic Records -- and Bubba Ritchie for short periods). Their last National single was "Lilacs in the Rain" featuring Marshall's magical natural falsetto. For much more information please see: http://www.vocalhalloffame.com/inductees/the_ravens.html

"Impressionism" is a philosophical and aesthetic term borrowed from late 19th century French painting after Monet's Impression, Sunrise. Composers were labeled impressionists by analogy to the impressionist painters who use starkly contrasting colors, effect of light on an object, blurry foreground and background, flattening perspective, etc. to make the observer focus his attention on the overall impression. The most prominent in musical impressionism is the use of "color", or in musical term, timbre, which can be achieved through orchestration, harmonic usage, texture, etc. Other elements of music impressionism also involve new chord combinations, ambiguous tonality, extended harmonies, use of modes and exotic scales, parallel motions, extra-musicality, and evocative titles.

"Dark-Eyed Cossack Girl" - Leonid Kharitonov & The Alexandrov Red Army Choir (1969)

LYRICS

Leonid Kharitonov & the Alexandrov Ensemble Choir of the Red Army - "Dark-Eyed Cossack Girl" or "Chernoglazaya Kazachka" (with English Subtitles). Music by M. Blanter, lyrics by I. Selvinsky. This song is about Cossak Soldier who once met a dark-eyed Cossak girl and asked her to shoe his horse. The girl agreed and asked for a very small price. The man asked her name since he liked her very much. The girl refused to tell her name and answered that the cossack would hear it right from under his horse's shoes when he rides it. The cossack started riding his horse and guessing her name - Masha? Zina? Dasha? Nina?.. No, they were all wrong... KATYA, KATYA, KATERINA - the horseshoes knocked her name...!!! Since those times whereever the cossack went he always whispered "KATYA, KATYA, KATERINA"... He was thinking that that was an obsession since he already had another girlfriend. But strange thing was that he could never take that cossak girl's name out of his chest as it was a neverending song inside there... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ NOTICE!

Катя, Катя высекают Мне подковы скакуна. С той поры хоть шагом еду, Хоть галопом поскачу, Катя, Катя, Катерина, Неустанно я шепчу. Что за бестолочь такая, У меня ж другая есть!

Educated at Rutgers College and Columbia University, he was also a star athlete in his youth. His political activities began with his involvement with unemployed workers and anti-imperialist students whom he met in Britain and continued with support for the Loyalist cause in the Spanish Civil War and his opposition to fascism. In the United States he also became active in the Civil Rights Movement and other social justice campaigns. His sympathies for the Soviet Union and for communism, and his criticism of the United States government and its foreign policies, caused him to be blacklisted during the McCarthy era. In 1915 Robeson won an academic scholarship to Rutgers College, where he was twice named a consensus All-American and was the class valedictorian. Almost eighty years later, he was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. He received his LL.B. from Columbia Law School, while playing in the National Football League (NFL). At Columbia, he sang and acted in off-campus productions. After graduating, he became a figure in the Harlem Renaissance with performances in The Emperor Jones and All God's Chillun Got Wings.
