Little Anthony and the Imperials is a rhythm and blues/soul/doo-wop vocal group from New York, first active in the 1950s. Lead singer Jerome Anthony “Little Anthony” Gourdine was noted for his high-pitched falsetto voice, influenced by Jimmy Scott. The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 4, 2009, 23 years after the group’s first year of eligibility for induction, waiting longer than any other artist for the honor.
The Crystals first recording, There’s No Other (Like My Baby) was also their first hit which catapulted them straight to the Apollo Theatre. They continued their successful recordings with five more hit records, Uptown, He’s A Rebel, He’s Sure The Boy I Love, Da Doo Ron Ron, and Then He Kissed Me.
The Marcels are the guys who put the “Bomp in the “Bomp-A-Bomp” back in 1961 when their first recording, Blue Moon, sold over two and a half million copies. This signature song has been used in at least four major motion pictures and various TV shows.
