    Biography :

    Hull Records was located in New York's famous Brill Building. It released a meagre sixty odd singles in more than a decade in the business. Their two best doo wop groups, The Heartbeats and Shep and The Limelites, were both very good and shared a lead singer. The Avons are also well regarded by doo wop fans.  The Sparks had two consecutive Hull releases issued during the spring of 1956 "Danny Boy" / "Run, Run, Run" (Hull 723) released for the R'n'B market and "Adreann" / "Finger" (Hull 724) issued for calypso listeners (on a green vice red label). The members of the Sparks were Joel Allen (lead vocals), Wilmon Walker (lead vocals), James Springer (tenor vocals), Morris Louder (baritone vocals) and Will Vason (bass vocals).
