Georgie Torrance & The Caribbeans (2) (New York)
George Torrance (Lead)
1959 - Too Soon / Sweet Little Thing (Called Girl) (Galliant 1003)
From Washington, D.C., George Torrence first recorded for Aladdin Records in 1954 as lead with the local group billed The Five Pearls on Aladdin 3265. Four years later, fronting a gathering from New York City called The Caribbeans, he cut ”Too Soon” b/w ”Sweet Little Thing” in 1958 billed as “Georgie Torrance & The Caribbeans” for the tiny NYC label Galliant 1003.
By 1960, again shown as Georgie Torrance, he was fronting The Dippers on ”Go Away” b/w ”(You’ve Been) So Good To Me” as King 5376, and when they next turned up at Epic Records in 1961, the billing was George Torrence & The Dippers on ”Such A Fool Was I” b/w ”Way Over Yonder” as Epic 9453. That billing remained the same in 1965 although his approach, which up to now was more Doo-Wop, changed to Soul for Together ”At Last” b/w the very definite Latino-tinged boogaloo Fine Foxey Frame as Duo Disc 117 (a West Coast label which spelled the group’s name as “Dipper’s”).
