    Discography :

    1959 - Long Long Time / Oh No You Won't (Oh Yes You Will) (RCA 7556)


    The original "Pyramid Quartet" quartet is not a quartet, really. But since only four of the boys sing, while the other four play instruments it seemed a likely name for the group when they began working together. Ralph Bailey, Jerry Cook, Ken Stephens and Weyman Kessler are vocalists, and Lou Harding, Gene Ulmer, Mike Beagle and Gerald Smith. the musicians. All are students at St. Petersburg Junior College and all are members of the Pyramid Social Club.  The members of the unit got together in early 1958 when the Pyramid Club Was planning entertainment for a rush party. The group made such a hit that they been in great demand, not only appearing at Junior College functions but at other events, outside school, as well. In March The Pyramid Quartet has made several tape recordings of their renditions. Among the tunes taped are those written by members of the group ..."Long. Long Time," by Jerry Cook; "A Thousand  Ways," by Lou Harding;  plus "This Heart of Mine", "Wear My Ring " and "Wait For Me."  The group will have to wait almost a year for Jerry Cook's magnificent doo wop: "Long Long Time" bached by "Oh No You Won't (Oh Yes You Will)" to be released by RCA as The Pyramids.
