    Biography :

    Black vocal group from Washington D.C consisted of Richard Fountain, William Jones Jr, Jimmy Drake, Horace Logan & Benjamin Thomas. In 1962, Benjamin Thomas & Richard Fountain write the fantastic "Shedding Teardrops" and C. Otis, Brook Benton and  Cirino Colacrai (The Bowties) wrote the beautiful "In A Dream". Ember released the two songs "In A Dream" b/w "Shedding Teardrops" on Ember # 1099 (Ember is an ABC Paramount subsidiary).  The group's Ember release unfortunately occurred in 1963, when the Ember label was not going well. Unfortunately, Consequently, neither the group nor the release received any promotional support or attention. Yet both pieces are fantastic (in my opinion) . Two other songs were recorded by the Paramonts, probably at the same session, but "There's A Light" and "Barbara Is Coming For Her Lover" will be unpublished by the label ...
