    Biography :

    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.

    Georgie Torrance & The Dippers

    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”).
