4.0 out of 5 stars As Complete As You're Going To Get For The Ad Libs February 5, 2012
Hugh Harris, Danny Austin, John Alan, David Allen Watt, Jr. and James Wright began, like many vocal groups back then all over the U.S., singing on the street corners, in their case in Bayonne, New Jersey, After starting out as The Arabians, in early 1962, now named The Creators, they recorded I'll Never Do It Again b/w Boy, He's Got It for the tiny T-Kay label out of Brooklyn (T-Kay 110). Neither side is her. Later that year, for the much larger Philips company, they recorded Yeah, He's Got It which had an instrumental version of Boy, He's Got It as the flip (Philips 40058), and for the Christmas season they did I Stayed Home (New Year's Eve) b/w Shoom Ba Da (Philips 40063). None of these made any major charts but all Ad Libs sides are here.

It was also in that period that Watts was drafted, his replacement being bass Chris Coles who had experience with a group called The Roamers who had cut some sides for Savoy. In 1964, with Watts back from service and Norman Donegan also added, they came across Mary Ann Thomas, then singing with another gathering, and brought her in as their new lead, at the same time changing their name once more, this time to The Ad Libs.

A new contract with the Red Bird subsidiary, Blue Cat, owned by Jerry Leiber, Mike Stoller and George Goldner, led to the late 1964 recording of the smash hit, The Boy From New York City, which hit # 6 R&B/# 8 Billboard Pop Hot 100 in Jan/Feb 1965 b/w Kicked Around on Blue Cat 102. Which was remarkable for a North American group and a relatively small label in the face of the full-fledged Brith Invasion which, by then, owned most of the air time and juke box play, not to mention record sales.
