The Saucers were on of the few doo wop groups from Texas, a blues and R&B stronghold. They are a really good Black quintet with strong, beautiful lead vocals and harmonizing on ballads, uptempo and novelty tunes.
Native vocal groups were not very popular in texas during the 50s and the style came to the state rather late in the decade after being extremely popular along the east and west coasts. Despite the late arrival, those few groups that did emerge in Texas learned their lesson well.
Of these, the Saucers are the Velvetones, who recorded on Dee records under this name, were the Best and certainly equal to many to the more popular groups on either coast.
Note on CD "Presenting the Saucers"
