2 LPs on 1 CD: THE CLOVERS (1956)/DANCE PARTY (1959).
The Clovers: Billy Mitchell, Matthew McQuarter, Harold Lucas, Harold Winley (vocals); Bill Harris (guitar).
One of the most popular R&B vocal groups of the 1950s, the Clovers excelled with their dynamic approach to doo-wop. Formed in Washington, D.C., the ensemble, generally led by Billy Mitchell, had numerous hits throughout the '50s, including the blues-laced "Ting-a-Ling," the passionate "Don't You Know I Love You," and the dreamy "Devil or Angel," all of which are featured on this excellent 26-track disc.
Capable of easily shifting between proto-rock numbers (the rollicking "Hey Miss Fanny") and jazz-tinged ballads (a gorgeous rendition of "Blue Velvet"), the Clovers were also notable for their resonant harmonies and varied arrangements, ranging from the full-band punch of the former tune to the spare framing of the latter. Consisting of two late-'50 albums, this set provides sharper focus on the ensemble than a career retrospective, making it ideal for those looking for more than just the Clovers' remarkable run of singles.
