    Biography :

    The Clovers, who hailed from the Washington area, had been recording since 1950; by 1961 the group had split and reformed as two separate Clovers, one led by Harold Lucas the other by John Bailey.  The line-up of the Lucas group was Robert Russel, James “Toy” Walton and Eddie “Tippie” Hubbard.  The Lucas group recorded and released records as "Tippie and the Clovermen" and "Tippie and the Clovers" for Tiger Records, a subsidiary of Rust Records.
