    Biography :

    Obscure and talented doo-wop harmony group that recorded for producer Bob Bertram (of 'Susie Darlin’' by Robin Luke fame) for his Hawaii-based International label in the late 1950s. The Flames, led by leader Willie Gaines, were a racially mixed group whose members were in the Navy when they linked up with Bertram.  In early 1958 The Flames backed Tom Moffatt.
