    Four Deuces
    The members of the Four Deuces were Luther "Lord Luther" McDaniel (lead), Jim Dunbar (1st tenor), Orvis Lee Turner (baritone), and Henry Shufford (bass). The year was 1954 when the members, except McDaniel, were stationed at Fort Ord, California. They met a local club where they started singing. They went to Ray Dobard's Music City recording studio where they recorded "W-P-L-J". The title comes from a popular drink at the time, white port and lemon juice. Like many Black groups of the 40's and 50's they never received a single royalty for the song or the commercial they did for "Italian Swiss Colony Wine". http://home.earthlink.net/~v1tiger/deuces.html
