    Biography :

    In 1952, Carl Hogan joined several friends in Harlem  to form the doo-wop group, The Valentines. Originally called The Dreamers, the quartet was expanded with the addition of lead tenor Richard Barrett. Hogan would leave the group in late 1954 before a session at Old Town Records,  after a fight with the rest of the group. Carl Hogan during his absence from the Valentines (Before returning in 1956) had recorded with Charles Sampson (from the Velvets) as "Charles And Carl" for Red Robin, for The Velvets on Fury and went on to sing with The Miracles on Fury.
