Because many disc jockeys during the mid-'50s would play only a limited number of records on any one label, George Goldner took the name of his Rama Records hit "Gee" to form his new label and get more airplay for his artists. Among the artists you'll hear on this collection are Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers, The Angels, The Crows, The Jets, and The Echoes.
Performers include: Frankie Lymon, The Angels, The Cleftones, The Downbeats, The Regents.
Gee Records, Vol. 1 contains 14 well-chosen tracks taken from the mid-'50s vaults of George Goldner's Gee Records. Cleftones, Regents, Heartbeats, and Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers, amongst others, are represented. This is a good disc to get if you have any interest in essential mid-'50s doo wop but aren't sure where to start. ~ Al Campbell
