The Avalons


The Avalons emerged in the same vibrant (albeit incestuous) Newport Information, VA, R&B scene that also yielded the Five Keys, the Market leaders, as well as the Chateaus. Based on Marv Goldberg’s profile within the March 2002 problem of Discoveries, the group’s root base lie within a flexible R&B and gospel group dubbed the Chimes, produced in 1947 by tenor/baritone Charles “Bobby” Crawley, tenor Ulysses Hicks, baritone Leroy Harris, and bass Bernard Purdie. Hicks resigned in 1948, afterwards resurfacing within the Five Tips, and with brand-new tenor Maryland Pierce, the group renamed itself the Four Bees, learning to be a main favorite on the neighborhood nightclub circuit. When Pierce became a member of the Five Keys in 1950, erstwhile Essential Edwin Wall changed him within the Four Bees — Harris also exited immediately after, prompting the enhancements of tenors Adam Dozier and George Cox. When Wall structure still left the group in early 1951, he was changed by another Five Keys alum, tenor Rafael Ingram, and at this time the Four Bees rechristened themselves the Encores; the next calendar year, the group toured Canada within the Silas Green Display R&B revue, therefore enjoying the fantastic White North they spent about five years touring the country’s eastern provinces. In nov 1955, they employed Five Tips supervisor Fanny Wolff to oversee their profession aswell, and almost instantly she gained the group a cope with RCA’s Groove subsidiary, prompting one last name transformation to the Avalons. Simply times before their first-ever documenting program, Crawley’s wife dropped ill, therefore he was briefly replaced with the Cues’ Edward Barnes for the studio room day — although two tracks were documented, neither merited standard release, as well as the Avalons came back to Canada before their next program. This time around Crawley assumed his rightful place as well as the beautiful “Stores Around My Center” premiered in Feb 1956 — “It’s Funny But It’s Accurate” adopted in Oct, but neither record was popular and Groove terminated their agreement. The Avalons once again decamped to Canada, liberating “YOU MIGHT BE My Heart’s Desire” for the small Canuck label Sandryon in 1958; a far more polished version from the music, abbreviated to basically “Heart’s Desire,” made an appearance on Unart about half a year following the group break up in the springtime of 1958. Another unreleased program yielded “IT IS POSSIBLE TO Depend on Me,” released on Internet casino in early 1959. For the time being, Crawley came back to Newport Information and became a member of the Five Secrets, while Purdie later on signed on using the Platters.
