The Moonglows - Chess 1661 (1957)

Found this one in an old outbuilding a few weeks ago.

Alan Freed changed the name of this group, to The Moonglows, and started actively promoting them. They eventually signed with Chess and started charting their singles.

In 1958, Harvey Fuqua, the defacto leader of the group, discovered a young vocal group, The Marquees, with a recording already under their belt. A nineteen year old Marvin Gaye was in the group. After the original members split due to feuding, this new group & Fuqua became The New Moonglows in 1958.
