Buddy & The Citations were a Chicago Area band from Waukegan,IL formed by Buddy Stephens (drums, vocals), Jessie Basques (guitar), Bobby Penny (guitar) and Tom Fabre (sax) present in the doo wop guides with...
-A-E-I-O-U / Four Lined Tennis Shoes. Boddie Records-?.
-Don't Let Her Have Her Way / Juvenile Delinquent. IRC Records-1964.
(The B Side was originally recorded by Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers in 1956 for Gee Records).
In 1958 rock & roll singer Ward Darby and his band the Raves signed with Joe Averbach of Fee Bee Records who add to Chuck Jackson (Dell Vikings) and the Five Playboys ( see in this blog) to provided the background vocals for one release in the subsidiary label Starr records with the rockin side “Iggy Joe” and the oriented doo wop side “Be Mine” under the name of WILLIE WARD DARBY.
This 45 rpm is present in the Kreiter vocal group record guide.
Above 45 rpm picture sleeve of Jerry Woodard from 1960 for Colvin Record with the sides "New love / You just wait". present in the Kreiter vocal group guide with a value of $ 50 but the book not mentioned this sleeve.
B side " You Just Wait" re-released the same year on Century Limited records with the side "Long Tall Texan".
45 rpm acetate record of the Makees from Houston, Texas with the sides "Forever Always / Little Lamb Rock."
A side is a doo wop ballad with an instrumental track on the B side.
Actually they are THE VEL AIRES " from La Marque, Texas. Sam Corbett, Richard Presley, Roger Stanfield, Charles Lowe, Harry Faust & Gene Ennis. In 1961 they recorded the acetate sides for Dino records.
In 1962, KSO air personality and program director Dick Vance from Des Moines, Iowa recorded a 45 RPM record on Sor-Va records with the sides "Sharon oh Sharon / Nuthin, Man Nuthin " this 45 was promoted on KSO and it was charted locally in december 1962.
A side "Sharon oh Sharon " is an oriented doo wop sound and for me it deserves to be present in the doo-wop guides.
This song of Marsha Lynn and The Episodes with Gaylon Christie' Downbeats "(Listen To Me) I Am Your Heart" recorded for the Waco, Texas label Bid records in 1962 not is in any guide of doo wop, but I think it is a good candidate to be present, as it has a very good doo wop oriented sound.
