Editorial Reviews

Both sides of all six of the singles the Teen Queens did for RPM are contained on this retrospective of material that they cut for Modern between 1955 and 1957, along with five LP-only tracks, a few outtakes, and a brief radio commercial. The Teen Queens are more notable than the usual one-hit wonders: They were among the very few female doo wop groups to make an impact; as such, they could be considered distant forerunners of the girl group sound. This compilation is more interesting than those of many other one-hit wonders from the '50s. There are a few too many "Eddie My Love" soundalikes and a blatant adaptation of "Since I Met You Baby" ("My Heart's Desire"); yet there are also some surprisingly good, uptempo R&B numbers, particularly "Red Top," a cover of the 1953 single by King Pleasure and Betty Carter (which in turn had been based on a Gene Ammons instrumental). The sister harmonies of Betty Collins and Rosie Collins are spirited, and the backup is the accomplished R&B-turning-into-rock that was typical of the Modern label in the mid-1950s. Collectors might also want to hear their final single, the little-known Leiber-Stoller production "Two Loves and Two Lives"/"I Miss You," although Leiber and Stoller didn't write them, and the songs are nothing special. ~ Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide

Format: Audio CD
The second this hit the market it became the best compilation you'll find anywhere on one of the pioneers of the R&R Era "Girl-Group Sound" simply by the fact it comes from Ace Records of the U.K., only the best in the business when it comes to thoroughness, sound quality and background details when dealing with oldies music.

Following the October 1954 and April 1955 success of Shirley Gunter And "The Queens" with Oop Shoop for the small Flair subsidiary of the LA-based Modern Records owned by the Bihan Brothers, and The Hearts with Lonely Nights for the New York City-based Baton label, the sister duo of Betty and Rosie Collins, whose brother Aaron was a member of The Cadets/Jacks, made history by becoming the first black girl group to enter the Billboard Pop Top 100 with Eddie My Love (written by brother Aaron) which hit # 2 R&B and # 14 Top 100 in early 1956 for the RPM subsidiary of Modern, also owned by the Bihan Brothers, finishing in a tie with The Chordettes cover for Cadence and just back of The Fontane Sisters [# 11] cover for Dot.

That would be their only hit single, a fact caused partly by some mediocre follow-up material and more probably by the limited promotional funds available to the Bihans whose "empire" included Modern, Flair, Crown, United/Superior, Yuletide and Meteor, the last of which operated out of Memphis, and the need to pick and choose whose RPM records they would push from among artists such as B.B. King, The Jacks, Johnny "Guitar" Watson and Richard Berry.

NOTE: This review is for the original vinyl record album. The ACE Records CD that's linked to this same page is a far more comprehensive compilation.
.

Founded in 1950, RPM was a subdivision of MODERN Records. For its first six years, RPM issued only 45s. In '56 the label entered the LP market with A ROCK AND ROLL DANCE PARTY (LRP-3001). Another eight RPM titles were announced, including records by the Jacks and B.B. King, but these may not exist on the RPM label. For certain, MODERN released those eight under their CROWN imprimatur.

EDDIE MY LOVE by the Teen Queens is one of the eight. Originally scheduled as LRP-3007, it appeared in 1957 on CROWN as CLP-5022.

The Teen Queens were Betty and Rosie Collins, sisters of doowop vocalist Aaron Collins of the Cadets. Released in March of '56, "Eddie My Love" peaked at #14 on the nationwide pop chart and was a #2 R&B hit. Rosie and Betty's sole charting single was written in part by brother Aaron.
