The King Bees
The King Bees (Washington, D.C. )
1957 - Lovely Love / Can't You Understand (KRC 302)
The King Bees are an outstanding male quartet discovered by Lloyd Price. His band backs them on "Lovely Love" and "Can't You Understand". Founded by Lloyd Price, Harold Logan, and Bill Boskent, KRC Records was in existence for less than two years, but started out with a band. Its first release "Just Because" was a massive R&B hit that also made it into the top thirty Pop charts in the spring of 1957 when it was released by ABC Paramount.
It was owned by Lloyd Price, a twenty three year old singer just out of a stint in the army. Having relocated to Washington DC from his native New Orleans, Lloyd retained the New Orleans musical flavor that he made famous via his 1952 smash Lawdy Miss Clawdy. While only the follow up release of Lonely Chair was able to briefly dent the bottom of the Pop charts in the fall of 1957, his six releases on KRC maintained the high musical standards that he had previously set during four years of recording for Specialty Records.
