The Blenders - MGM 11488 (1953)

Here's an early R&B/doowop group that began when the 2nd tenor of The Ravens, Ollie Jones, was deemed by the manager not to have strong enough vocals and also was told he didn't "blend" in well with the others. (Ironic that the new group was called The Blenders?)

Here are two of the four sides they recorded during a private session under producer Joe Davis which were sold to MGM.

The lineup on these may be Ollie Jones, Abel DeCosta, James DeLoach and Napoleon Allen.

Recorded on March 27. 1953.
