Description by

Garnet Mimms sang in the gospel groups The Evening Stars, Norfolk Four, and the Harmonizing Four before he formed his first group The Gainors in 1958. But he didn't achieve great commercial success until he joined together with The Enchanters in 1961. They had a #1 R&B and Top 10 Pop hit with "Cry Baby" in 1963.

Product Description:

Personnel: Garnet Mimms (vocals, piano); Zola Pearnell, Charles Boyer (vocals).
Garnet Mimms' debut album, Cry Baby and 11 Other Hits, was a well-above-average effort for soul LPs of the era. Besides the title smash, it featured solid material that married Mimms' gospel feel with uptown New York soul production; "Anytime You Want Me," "Wanting You," and "Baby Don't You Weep" were some of his finest songs. It's been reissued in its entirety, along with 14 other cuts, on the British CD Cry Baby/Warm and Soulful; most of the songs are on the domestic compilation The Best of Garnet Mimms. ~ Richie Unterberger
