This group put out some of the best covers of jazz/rock classics I hve ever heard. Their version of Harlem Nocturne, with the rauchiest saxaphone player I have ever heard, is the best. They do some excellent covers, but their original stuff is lacking; probably why they didn't last.

I'm 47 years old. When I was a young girl my Grandma listened to these guys on a couple of 45's and an old record player. I used to dance around her living room when she played them. Just feeling that Jazzy music made me a music buff for all my life. I had searched for their music many times but to no avail. After finding this I could hardly wait for it to arrive. The first song I played is called "The Touch". Wow, this took me right back to Grandma's living room and that same feeling came over me when I heard it. I love it now just as I loved it then.
Thanks Amazon....Hope Grandma heard it too!!!!!!!

Format: Audio CD
When Larry Uttal launched his Madison Records label in 1958, it took until mid-1959 before he had his first hit single with a girl group from New Jersey calling themselves The Tassels who had their only hit single when To A Soldier Boy peaked at # 55 Hot 100 that summer. Perhaps its modest showing was due to Uttal's misplaced desire to latch onto the stereo bonanza because, although the disc was cut in mono, he manipulated it to "simulate" stereo by having the girls voices constantly shift from channel to channel on some of the releases. The effect wasn't great.

It seems he did the same with an instrumental group from New Jersey which he "inherited" from Marty Foglia who, as a sideline from his main job as Alan Freed's sound engineer, also ran a small label called Cecelia. In 1959 he recorded an instrumental group from New Jersey calling themselves The Fabulous Dominoes - brothers Bobby (guitar) and Joe Spievak (bass), tenor saxophonist Harry Haller, organist Larry Vecchio and drummer Clark Smith, all volunteer firefighters in their real jobs.

Rather than press and release what they had recorded himself, he sold the masters to Uttal who changed their name to The Viscounts. One of those masters was a cover of the 1940 jazz instrumental Harlem Nocturne, most recently a hit in 1953 for Herbie Fields & His Orchestra. With Dig as the flipside, and released late in 1959 on Madison 123, it reached # 17 R&B and # 52 Hot 100 early in 1960. The follow-up The Touch b/w Chug-a-Lug on Madison 129 went nowhere, and in late summer 1960 another cover, this time of Jimmy Forest's 1952 # 1 R&B smash Night Train, topped out at # 82 Hot 100 b/w Summertime on Madison 133.

I had hoped that it would sound better than it did.
I really wanted to get this as I loved it when it was first out in a record album
I still am glad I got it but do wish it sounded better

I received this CD in a timely manner and in perfect condition. This CD is a compilation of this group's music, and as such highlights the fact that they have a limited repertoire. However, I purchased it to acquire a copy of the title song, which is rather obscure and hard to find.
