    Biography :

    In mid-1956, Vernon Green (Lead singer of the Medallions put together another group (called the Phantoms) at the request of Specialty Records' owner Art Rupe. The Phantoms were, Bobby Relf (tenor; lead of the Laurels and future "Bob" of Bob & Earl), Jerry Williams (tenor), and Johnny Moss (bass). [The Specialty files tell a different identity of the Phantoms: Vernon Green, Johnnie Moss, Edward Earl Daniels, Madalyn Marselle, and Sidney Runnels.) When the Specialty sides were released, in July, the label credits even included Vernon's name! The association lasted only a short time, and a second Phantoms release on the Oriole label had the group, minus Vernon, backing Lynn Roberts.
