A talented doo wop group from Englewood, NJ, that formed in senior high school in 1954. Until they captured wind of the Los Angeles-based group using the same name, these were the Robins, plus they after that renamed themselves the Avons following a river in Britain. The initial lineup contains Bob, Costs, and Wendell Lea; Curtis Norris, and Ervin Watson. The quintet woodsheded until self-confident enough to execute regional gigs. By 1955, these were the latest group in the region. An area businessman became their supervisor and organized an audition with Bea Caslon, who owns Hull Information. Caslon agreed upon them at that moment to her fledging label, where they became a member of the Heartbeats of “ONE THOUSAND Mls Away” and afterwards “Daddy’s House,” of Shep & the Limelites popularity. However, the Avons hardly ever achieved the achievement the Heartbeats do, but were able to carve an area in doo wop heaven using the recordings “Our Like WON’T Die” (1956), “Baby” (1957), and “You’re Therefore Near Me” (1958). Ahead of their second discharge, (“Baby”) THE GOVERNMENT started snatching Avons for armed forces duty, initial drafting Norris (bass), who was simply changed by Franklin Cole, who was simply himself drafted and changed by George Coleman. After that Sunny Harley changed drafted baritone Costs Lea. The Avons’ last recording, “A WOMAN to Call MY VERY OWN” (1962), highlighted Harley. From 1955 to 1962, Hull released seven singles by them rather than one strike or charted. Their changing lineup — because of THE GOVERNMENT — didn’t help and promo images were always outdated. Avid radio listeners who resided beyond New York, NJ, Connecticut, or Pa during 1957 to 1962 skipped the Avons completely given that they didn’t project outside those four state governments — where their information were performed — to gig. Years afterwards, via doo wop books, periodicals, and Compact disc reissues, the Avons are finally getting the like and acclaim they searched for when youthful and starry-eyed.
