    Biography :

    Group From New York, fronted by Floyd S. Thomas, The Stereophonics cut "Love Is So Wonderful" b/w "No More Heartaches" for Apt. Records in 1958. Apt Records was a sub-label from ABC-Paramount Records. The label was started in 1958 and released only singles until it was shelved in 1966. The name was derived from ABC-Paramount's parent company, American Broadcasting-Paramount Theatres.

    The Next year, the same group cut " At Last" b/w "September Song" for Jaro International under the name of The Chordells.  Jaro was a jazz subsidiary label of Top Rank Records established in 1959 in New York City.

    At the same time, another group of the same name with a male lead (Little Chip aka Willie Howard) with female backing cut two singles for Hull & Mascot records. Mascot was a subsidiary of Hull. it is quite possible that this is the same group with a few personnel changes and all the Labels : Apt, Jaro, Hull and Mascot are from Manhattan... Waiting info ...
