Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this 1964 album from the R&B vocal group. The Jive Five began their singing career at the time when Soul music was establishing an identity in the era of R&B, and their songs have Doo-Wop roots with Soul stylings. The lilting 'I m A Happy Man' was a crossover Hot 100 hit in 1964, their first chart entry on United Artists. Featuring the distinctive lead vocal of Eugene Pitt, the Jive Five recordings for United Artists were included in their first album. In addition are the singles tracks omitted from the vinyl LP, plus a further bonus with the solo single by Eugene Pitt recorded for UA's soul subsidiary label Veep. These landmark vocal group recordings have not been available some 20 years, and the album is valued at premium price by collector dealers. Shout.
