    Biography :

    The Hi Tensions were led by Bobby Parker, a fine R&B singer whohad been whith the Chanteclairs on Lyric. The Boys were from south-central LA aera around Fefferson High School. Their first effort for Audio label was "The Clock"/"So Far Away" (Audio 201) recorded in October 20, 1960.

    Out of the same session came "I'm saying goodbye" / "A real sensation" but for some unknown reason, the Hi Tensions were called the Angels on this release (Audio 203). This 45 came out shortly after "The Clock" and it's probable that name change was made for just this one record to gain additional airplay.
