Edgar "Big Boy" Miles is the lead singer on both sides, with James "Sugar Boy" Crawford doing the "talking/sobbing" part on "No One To Love Me."

The Billboard Review (4/4/53):THE SHA-WEEZ - ALADDIN 3170
Early Sunday Morning (79) The Sha-Weez, new group on the label, come thru with a sock reading of a strong new ballad, backed with a hefty beat by the ork. The group sings well and has a good commercial sound. This side could be a coin-grabber with exposure.
No One To Love Me (72) The Sha-Weez turn in an effective performance on this side, but the material is much weaker than the flip.
(NOTE: A ratings range of 70-79 was considered "good.")
