A relative bought this one for me as a present, knowing my predilection for Fifties music, and while I was suitably grateful I was also quick to notice (although I said nothing to the relative) that on a compilation called "The Best Of" they didn't even include Cool Shake - one of exactly three hits they had.

In fact, you will be hard pressed to find the original of Cool Shake on ANY of their compilations - or be certain that it IS the original if you do find it - considering the rapid turnover within the group.

Their main claim to fame is that they were among the first - if not THE first - integrated vocal groups. Originating at a Pittsburgh USAF base, the originals included lead Norman Wright, Clarence Quick, Corinthian "Kripp" Johnson, Dave Lerchey (the only white member at the time), and Don Jackson. Perhaps because they were a mixture of black and white, at first they could only secure a contract with the small Fee Bee label in 1956. There they cut two records, Come Go With Me with Wright at lead and, after Jackson left, and with the addition of tenor Gus Backus (also white), Whispering Bells, with Kripp Johnson lead. Both generated enough interest within the limited circulation capacity of Fee Bee to attract interest from the much larger Dot label, home of Pat Boone and Billy Vaughn, among others.

That label re-released them in short order in 1957, and the first, credited to The Dell-Vikings, hit # 2 R&B and # 4 Billboard Top 100, peaking around April and staying on the charts for an impressive 39 collective weeks. The flipside was How Can I Find True Love? A few months later Whispering Bells was released under the billing The Dell-Vikings featuring Kripp Johnson and it went to # 5 R&B and # 9 Top 100 b/w Don't Be A Fool.

I have always loved music from the 1950's. I like this compilation, because it includes some big hits for the Del-Vickings: "Come Go With Me", "Whispering Bells", and "Face the Music". This album onlys contains the Dot (Fee Bee) and ABC recordings. If you want to sample more songs by the Del-Vikings, I suggest getting The Best of the Del Vikings-The Mercury Years as well. With these two CDs, you'd have a pretty complete collection. If you want to have outtakes as well, get the Collectable Edition while you're at it.

DEL VIKINGS are great singers. I love the song most by them named "Come and go with me"" a beautiful and popular song
with a great beat.
