    Biography :

    In 1954 brothers Eddie, Leo, and Ira Mesner, who had launched Aladdin Records in Hollywood in 1945 (originally called Philo Records until 1946), opened their East-Coast subsidiary Lamp, but whereas their main label boasted such well-known names as Louis Jordan, Wynonie Harris, Johnny Ace, Shirley & Lee, Thurston Harris, Charles Brown and even Lady Day, the great Billie Holiday, and the equally-legendary Nat "King" Cole (among many others), those who recorded the 29 Lamp singles from 1954 to 1958 were mostly obscure. Vocal groups who recorded for Lamp Records were: The Mellow Fellows, The Cues, The Cookies, The Carols, The Lovers, The Sharps, The Heart-Throbs, The Minorbops, The Inspirations and The Troopers. The Troopers consisted of Jerry Whitted, Alfonso Atwaters, Eddie L. Lindsey, Vernon S. Jones & Lincoln Alexander. The group has written several songs that they will recorded, unfortunately only two will be released by Lamp; "My Resolution" / "Get Out".
