    Biography :

    This group began as the El Dupreys from Pittsburgh. They were always the opening act for big name groups coming to the area. They split up and later reformed as the Excitements. Ronald Hill had a medical condition that initially forced him to leave the Excitements. When the group was traveling, Hill stayed home. Therefore on the road the group was a quartet. When they were about to record for Alanna, they asked Hill to join them for the recording — which he did.

    Following their audition, they learned that Alanna management loved them and signed them to record. They cut two discs for Alanna, the first of which was released in the fall of 1960. Following these two recordings, Elroy and the Excitements kept busy with live appearances but did no further recording. Eventually they were released from their contract with Alanna. After leaving Alanna, they auditioned for Motown but met with no success. They then became Leroy and the Enchantments and recorded for Romac.

    dion, thanks for the pictures, but "Groove 0058" actually became released in 1965, not in 1955.
