Biography :

The Enchanters who perform "True Love Gone" on Coral records were another of the 1950's gospel groups that made the shift to R&B. As gospel singers they were known as the Hollowell Brothers.  While on tour in 1956 , Duke Ellington discovered the Enchanters in Detroit , Michigan. 

                                                                                    Alton "Bart" Hollowell

Duke was so impressed with them  that he pressed a few of their tunes (True Love Gone / Wait a minutes baby) on the Mercer label and distributed to local DJs. The name of that label was Mercer ( his brother’s name).


A Great R&B  group which included the Hollowell brothers and Tommy Wade, their recordings were never given much air time outside Detroit . During the summer of 1957, Alton "Bart" Hollowell  replaced  Frank Holt in the Falcons.
