Above: Label for Modern Music 20-512 released in January 1947. It is The Scamps' first record. Earl Robinson sings lead on both sides. The talking bass on "More Than You Know" and the ending of the flip side "Don't Cry Baby" are reminiscent of The Ink Spots.

They had four more releases on Modern Music/Modern (1947-48) before moving to Columbia in 1949 (as The Five Scamps). There was also a single release on Peacock (1955).
