Savoy Label-Dolly Cooper And Four Buddies-1953
Above: Savoy 891 released in April 1953. Dolly Cooper sings lead and Maurice Hicks does a fine job singing bass on the bridge part. Strangely, the label only credits Dolly on the flip side "I Wanna Know", which has no vocal group backing. This was to be The Four Buddies last record. Their first record was backing Little Esther as The Metronomes (1950). In between were eight excellent releases of their own.
