Editorial Reviews

Jasmine present this fantastic rockin' Doo-Wop and Ballads set from one of the greatest groups of the era.... The Cadillacs! This is the first time that the A & B sides of the groups singles have been collected together and features such classic cuts as "Speedo" and "Gloria". Fans of Doo Wop and especially The Coasters will enjoy this selection of witty songs from this fantastic vocal group.

5.0 out of 5 stars Virtually All Of Their Josie Records Singles December 9, 2012
Format:Audio CD
When this came out in 2010 from Jasmine of the U.K., it immediately replaced the 1990 Rhino so-called "best of" album in terms of their hit singles, eve though the title they chose - Zoom - doesn't lay a claim to being their best.

Originaitng in the Harlem district of New York City, the group initially comprised lead Earl "Speedo" Carroll, Gus Willingham, LaVern Drake and John Clark, and they began their recording career with the Josie label in 1954 singing the slow doo-wop ballads that find so much favour among many collectors today. But they themselves preferred the faster, hard-rocking style epitomized in their first hit which came early in 1956 using Carroll's nickname, by which time Willingham and Clark had been replaced by Earl Wade, Robert Phillips and Charles Brooks.

Speedo peaked at # 3 R&B and # 17 Billboard Pop Top 100 in February on Josie 785 b/w b/w Let Me Explain. Ten months later they had their second hit with Gene Autry's Christmas classic, Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer which, b/w Shacka Doo on Josie 807, made it to # 11 R&B. All four sides, accompanied by the Jesse Powell orchestra, are here, unlike the Rhino release which contains only Speedoo.

A long stretch then ensued before they scored again with Peek-A-Boo which, backed by the Ossie Johnson orchestra, and with new members James Bailey and Bobby Spencer replacing Drake and Brooks, reached # 20 R&B/# 28 Billboard Pop Hot 100 in January 1959 b/w Oh, Oh Lolita on Josie 846. Nothing else cut at that label could get them back on the national charts (although their records always sold well on a regional basis) and it would take another two years and a switch to the Mercury subsidiary, Smash, before they scored again with What You Bet, which topped out at # 30 R&B b/w You Are To Blame on Smash 1712.

5.0 out of 5 stars The 50's Cadillacs are 50+ just as good and relevant September 8, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
How sad that today's youth are unable to participate in this kind of vocal music SINGING. What passes today for a vocal group is a cacophony of sound mixed and re-mixed over keyboard produced "music". True vocal harmony and lead-singing is absent. Tune in to this special group as they show how it is accomplished!!!
