The Crescendos


Among the definitive one-shot rock and roll sets of the ’50s, the Crescendos reached amount five right from the box making use of their initial one, “Oh Julie,” in early 1958. A fairly typical doo wop ballad, it had been lifted from the normal towards the exalted by adding ghostly high back-up vocals by Janice Green, who was simply not even an associate of the group, having been plucked for the work by possibility while auditioning at the same studio room of which the one was documented. Also pressing the one were the participating sub-Elvis vocals of George Lanius as well as the appealingly crude — certainly, garage-like — creation (there’s not a bass for the record). It had been an motivated fluke that couldn’t actually end up being repeated, and actually the Nashville group had been dropped off their Nasco label after simply two follow-up singles, departing “Oh Julie” behind to haunt oldies radio displays for decades.
