1955 - Only for You / Craving (Dooto 365)
The Medallions were formed by lead singer Vernon Green in Los Angeles, California, USA, after record company boss Dootsie Williams commented on the quality of his voice as he was walking down the street one day. The rest of the group were built around Green’s strong vocal abilities, and took their collective name from their leader’s fondness for jewellery. They released three singles for Dootone’s Dooto subsidiary between 1956 and 1957 in this manner.
Green responded by putting together a new group featuring Kenneth Williams and Frank Marshall, issuing "Only For You" b/w "Craving" on Dootone in June 1955. Billed as the Cameos, this formation did not last, however, and Dootsie Williams then placed Green as singer with another of his groups, the Dootones (who shared the name of the label).
