1957 - Devil's Angel (Ember)
Vocal group from Freeport, NY. The Colonials consisted of Billy Brown, Kenneth Dames, William Pride, Louis Shervington and Alphonso Dames. They recorded three songs. "Can't Stand To Lose You" and "Sandy" will be released in June 1957 by Ember. Ember was founded in New York as a sister label to Herald by Al Silver. It would release one hundred and eleven singles in its eight years in business. And while many of its artists and their recordings are now obscure, two singles – ‘In The Still Of The Night’ by the Five Satins and ‘Get A Job’ by the Silhouettes – are acknowledged classics.
