    Biography :

    J.R. Bailey, born James Bailey, is an R&B singer and songwriter. He was a member of the Cadillacs from 1956 to 1972 and scored five R&B singles hits under his own name between 1968 and 1975, the biggest of which was "After Hours" (number 29, 1973).

    The Cadillacs in the 1959 Alan Freed movie “Go, Johnny, Go”: J.R. Bailey, Bobby Spencer, Earl Carroll and Bobby Phillips

    In 1957, differences in opinion caused the Cadillacs to split. The new Cadillacs consisted of J. R. Bailey, Bobby Spencer (of the HARPTONES on Rama and the Crickets on Jay Dee), Bill Lindsey (of the Starlings on Josie and the Twilighters on MGM) and Champ Rollow.

    From the Cadillacs, J. R. Bailey and Bobby Spencer cut "Sweet little Baby" b/w "Gee-Ver-Men-Nee-Vers" for Dot in 1958 as the Darts .
