The Avalons (2) (New Heaven, CT.)
1974 - Cheaters / Stuttering (Wallis 100)
Vocal group from from New Heaven,CT, originally know as the The Pastels in 1957, they changed their name when "Been So Long" by the Air Force Pastels reached # 4 on the Billboard R&B chart and # 24 on the pop chart. They changed their name by the Avalons from the box of the deck cards (The Avalon Deck). The Avalons is composed between 1957 and 1958 of various singers like Ed Hayden, Larry Meeker, Chuck Packevicz, Dave Kendricks or Jim Colwell.
In 1957, they recorded two songs for Marty Kugell’s Klik Records: "Cheaters" and "Stuttering". Klik was a short-lived New Haven’s label that never really had much in the way of hits but nonetheless cranked out a small batch of absolutely great doo wop sides before the payola scandal of 1959 closed its doors. Kugell, like most of his contemporaries in the record business did not keep detailed files on every group he recorded in the fifties. Many are unfortunately just names on a tape or demo, never tobe fully identified. Finally in the 70s, Wallis Records released the Klik Demos on a singles.
