    Biography :

    Charlie & Ray are best known for one thing -- they were unabashedly gay at a time when it wasn't widely publicized what one's sexual orientation was.

    In 1955, Charlie & Ray's first hit, "I Love You Madly" for Herald Records, caused something of a minor sensation, but it wasn't until they recorded this solid up-tempo clarinet-driven rocker, "Dearest One," that they hit pay dirt again.

    Further releases failed to connect with fans and by 1957 they called it quits.
