I - The Velvets (Red Robin 122) 1954. Reissued (Pilgrim 706) 1956.

Charles Sampson(lead), Donald Razor(tenor), George Thorpe(bass), Joe Razor, Bearle Ashton folks would always bash my hand, but I kept listening to Hunter Hancock on the radio, in LA. He was the first R&B Disc Jockey out there about 11 or 12 years ago.... he would play things like "I" by The Velvets. Do you remember that record? It's a slow ooo-wah song...
it sounded fabulous. My parents insisted it be dismissed from the radio and I knew I was onto something ...
