============================================== MATT THE CAT & THE JUKE IN THE BACK IS BACK WITH PART I TRIBUTE TO THE MOONGLOWS IN SHOW #4921
The Moonglows, Pt. 1
Much has been written about the great R&B vocal groups of the 1950s. Many of the classic groups were either great musicians and vocalists and never had the recognition or record sales to back it up or these groups were thrown together, they couldn't sing very well and scored one, solid hit that still spins in the eternal jukebox of public consciousness. The Moonglows were one of the few groups to come out of the post World War II, pre-Elvis era, who were extremely talented and had the sales figures and notoriety to back it up. Originally called The Crazy Sounds, Harvey Fuqua and Bobby Lester led The Moonglows to a #1 R&B smash in 1954 with 'Sincerely' on Chess, but that was after a somewhat bumpy start on Alan Freed's Champagne Records and Chicago's Chance Records. This week, Matt The Cat presents part 1 of a 2 part feature on the fantastic Moonglows, covering their career from 1953 to 1955. Vocal harmony doesn't get much sweeter than this, so don't miss one note of this week's "Juke in the Back" program.
1. Swanee River Boogie - Albert Ammons Mercury 1947 2. I Just Can't Tell No Lie - The Moonglows Champagne 1953 3. Baby Please - The Moonglows w/ Red Holloway Orch Chance 1953 4. Secret Love - The Moonglows w/ Red Holloway Orch Chance 1954 5. Real Gone Mama - The Moonglows w/ Red Holloway Orch Chance 1954 6. I Was Wrong â€" The Moonglows w/ Red Holloway Orch Chance 1954 7. 219 Train - The Moonglows w/ Red Holloway Orch Chance 1954 8. Sincerely - The Moonglows Chess 1954 9. Tempting - The Moonglows Chess 1954 10. Shoo Doo-Be-Doo (My Loving Baby) - Bobby Lester & The Moonlighters Checker 1954 11. So All Alone - Bobby Lester & The Moonlighters Checker 1954 12. Most Of All - The Moonglows â€" Chess 1955 13. *GREAT 78* I've Been Your Dog (Ever Since I've Been Your Man) Moonglows Champagne 1953 14. She's Gone - The Moonglows Chess 1955 15. I'm In Love - The Moonglows Chess 1955 16. In My Diary - The Moonglows Chess 1955 17. After Hours - Erskine Hawkins Bluebird 1946
