    Biography :

    James Warren was part of the Youngsters and the Shields Touring Group and promote "You Cheated" Which had become a national smash. In 1960, James Warren went on to join a group called the Lions. The original members were: Horace "Pookie" Wooten (second tenor/baritone), Charles Jackson (tenor) [both Wooten and Jackson had been in the "Zindy Lou" Chimes], baritone Jerome Evans, and bass James Warren.

They recorded "Two Timing Lover"/"The Feast Of The Beasts" for Rendezvous  and "The Yokel (He Went To Town)"/"Hickory Dickory" for Imperial. In the summer of 1960, when Charles Everidge (the Youngsters)  got out of the service, he replaced Jerome Evans. For their next session they added second tenor David Cobb (another former member of the Chimes) and first tenor Tony Allen (who had recorded "Night Owl" with the Chimes behind him [as the "Champs").

The Lions then recorded "No One" (led by David Cobb)/"Giggles" (fronted by Tony Allen); these were released on the Everest label in September 1960. The next month they were re-issued on James McEachin's Mack IV label. Their last record  was also on Mack IV: "Til The 13th Month"/"Girl Of The World." The Lions Broke up in 1961 and re-formed in 1963, with Ray Daughtery, Charles Jackson, James Warren, and Horace Wooten. Calling themselves the Resonics, they recorded three records (one each for Unity, Lil-Larry, and Lucky Token).
