An absolute must-have for doo-wop and vocal group collectors! The Cues from New York City backed everyone! LaVern Baker, Ruth Brown, Big Joe Turner...! They recorded the original version of Bill Haley's
Burn That Candle and recorded the Hot 100 classic Why. Assembled by legendary Atlantic Records A&R man Jesse Stone in 1954, the Cues made a series of 1954-1956 singles under their own name for Lamp, Jubilee, Capitol, and Prep that constitute "Why", Bear Family's exhaustive overview of the group's career. All in all, these are some wild, rockin' and hugely accomplished vocal group sides. Look at the titles! Now add the cream of the New York session musicians like Sam ‘The Man’ Taylor.
