The Drifters

Genre:50's & 60'sDemo:50 +

The Drifters

The Legendary Elsbeary Hobbs performed on the greatest Drifter hits of all time. Besides singing on many of the Drifters greatest hits, Hobbs was noted as the deep bass voice for the Drifters throughout the years. Hobbs was a member of “The Drifters” from 1958-1996, with the exception of the time he spent in the military service and his work as a medical assistant. From his return to the Drifters in 1969 through his untimely death in 1996, Hobbs w...

The Friends of Distinction

Genre:50's & 60'sDemo:50 +

The Friends of Distinction

One of the most likeable and vocally cohesive singing groups of the late 60s and early 70s, the Friends of Distinction are too often forgotten in retrospectives of that era, but their music has continued to live on. Formed by Harry Elston, Floyd Butler, Jessica Cleaves and Barbara Love in 1968, the group had a relatively short life in its original incarnation, but made some of the most memorable pop/soul music of all time. Elston had been singing w...

The Grass Roots

Genre:50's & 60'sDemo:50 +

The Grass Roots

The Grass Roots had a series of major hits — most notably "Let's Live for Today," "Midnight Confessions," "Temptation Eyes," and "Two Divided by Love" — that help define the essence of the era's best AM radio. Although the group's members weren't even close to being recognizable, and their in-house songwriting was next to irrelevant, the Grass Roots managed to chart 14 Top 40 hits, including seven gold singles and one plat...

The Ink Spots

Genre:50's & 60's

The Ink Spots

The Ink Spots played a large role in pioneering the black vocal group-harmony genre, helping to pave the way for the doo wop explosion of the '50s. The quavering high tenor of Bill Kenny presaged hundreds of street-corner leads to come, and the sweet harmonies of Charlie Fuqua, Deek Watson, and bass Hoppy Jones (who died in 1944) backed him flawlessly.   Kenny's impeccable diction and Jones's deep drawl were both prominent on the Ink Spots' first ...

The Intruders

Genre:Classic R&B / Funk

The Intruders

As the first group to score hits with the songwriting/production team of Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff, the Intruders played a major role in the rise of Philadelphia soul, but are sometimes lost in the shuffle amid better-known acts like the O'Jays or Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes. The Intruders were originally formed as a doo wop group in 1960, and sang around Philadelphia for several years. Lead singer Sam "Little Sonny" Brown, Eugene "Bird" Daughtry, Phil Terry...

The Manhattans

Genre:Classic R&B / FunkDemo:50 +

The Manhattans

The Manhattans were one of those classic R&B vocal groups who manage to achieve incredible career longevity by adapting their style to fit changing times. Formed in the '60s as a doo wop-influenced R&B quintet, the Manhattans reinvented themselves as sweet smooth soul balladeers during the '70s. In doing so, they somehow overcame the death of lead singer George Smith, and with new frontman Gerald Alston became more popular than they'd ever...

The Original Tymes

Genre:50's & 60'sDemo:50 +

The Original Tymes

Formed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA during 1956, George Hilliard, Donald Banks, Albert Berry and Norman Burnett first came together in the Latineers. Adding lead vocalist George Williams (6 December 1935, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, d. 28 July 2004, Maple Shade, New Jersey, USA), they secured a US number 1 hit as the Tymes with the evocative "So Much In Love" (1962), a gorgeously simple performance which recalled the bygone doo-wop era while anticipating the sweet harm...

The Searchers

Genre:50's & 60'sDemo:50 +

The Searchers

Founded in 1957 by John McNally (guitar/vocals), the Searchers were originally one of thousands of skiffle groups formed in the wake of Lonnie Donegan's success with "Rock Island Line." The Searchers' immediate competitors included bands such as the Wreckers and the Confederates, both led by Michael Pender (guitar, vocals), and the Martinis, led by Tony Jackson (guitar/vocals). By 1959, McNally and Pender were working together as a duet; later in the year, Jackson joined ...

The Spencer Davis Group

Genre:50's & 60'sDemo:50 +

The Spencer Davis Group

His ferocious soul-drenched vocals belying his tender teenage years, Stevie Winwood powered the Spencer Davis Group's three biggest U.S. hits during their brief life span as one of the British Invasion's most convincing R&B-based combos. Guitarist Davis formed the band with Winwood on organ, his brother Muff Winwood on bass, and drummer Peter York. Signing on with producer Chris Blackwell, the quartet got their first hit (the blistering...

The Temptations

Genre:Classic R&B / FunkDemo:50 +

The Temptations

The Temptations were the most versatile of Motown's vocal groups, and one of the most successful soul acts of the 1960s. The Temptations epitomized classic soul at its most urbane and graceful. Stop-on-a-dime choreography and classy elegance made the group a hit on stage; in the studio, their harmonies benefited from Motown's best songwriters and producers. The presence of several talented lead vocalists with distinct styles meant that they could play...
