    Biography :

    The group was formed by tenor and lead Charles Perry from among his friends in Evanston when he got out of the air force in the summer of 1961. Originally the other members consisted of second tenor Charles Woodridge, baritone Arthur Cox, and bass Andrew Thomas.

      

    In early 1962 Perry felt the group needed another member and added Carlton Black, who soon proved himself as the group's lead and principal songwriter. The Duvals recorded "What Am I?" b/w "Cotton" in 1963.

    During 1964 the Duvals, under the name Naturals and with Black as Lead, got on the local charts with an Impressions' soundalike, "Let Love Be True." They disbanded in 1965 when follow-ups failed.
