Billed as "The Most Promising R&B vocal group of 1958" in the Cash Box Poll, this classic CD features their hit "Tears On My Pillow" and all the rest of their debut album.
Little Anthony & The Imperials: "Little" Anthony Gourdine, Ernest Wright, Tracy Lord, Glouster Rogers, Clarence Collins.
Personnel: Little Anthony (vocals).
Recording information: Collectables Records.
The group's debut album on the End label contains their first couple of big hits, "Two People in the World" and "Tears on My Pillow," along with album filler such as "Cha Cha Henry" and "Oh Yeah," as well as old standards like "When You Wish Upon a Star" and "Over the Rainbow." Almost worth having for the cover alone, this is one of the classics of '50s vocal-group harmony. ~ Cub Koda
