    Biography :

    Bill lowery in Atlanta produced the Debonaires, or Five Debonaires as they were called originally on "Whispering Blues" (Herald 509). The group from Atlanta Georgia and included Arthur Simon, Emory Cloud and Milton Boykin, while Wesley J. Jackson arranged and provided guitar backing. Lowery had just a smash with "Young Love", he went on to produce Tommy Roe, Joe South and Ray Stevens, so the Debonaires’ catchy doo-wop was a real anomaly for him. Released in December, 1957, the flip  "Darling" became very popular among oldies fans for the tricky bass parts and nice harmonies.
