    Biography :

    The Lyrics got together in 1958 in southern Texas. They are remembered for the many public appearances they made in various southern Texas Locales. they did many record hops in conjunction with local San Antonio radio stations.

    Joe Anthony inaugurated Harlem in the summer of 1959 with a racially mixed vocal group fronted by Carl Henderson, the Lyrics. “Oh Please Love Me,” a doowop ballad, was a hot local hit over the closing months of that year, eventually selling a few thousand copies and making all three local charts.


    It was picked up by Wildcat records and then by Coral. But it did not sell well enough to attract national attention.
    The second and last Lyrics single, with a faithful Moonglows cover on the A-side. Carl Henderson sings lead on both sides.

    Henderson went on to record for Renco locally before moving to California and having a couple of minor hits on Renfro in the mid-‘60s
    This was a racially mixed group. Carl Henderson was black and the others were Hispanic.
