The Dominoes with Clyde McPhatter: The Dominoes Featuring Clyde McPhatter - 18 Hits, Volume 2 (LP)

(Gusto Records) 18 tracks - Original 'King' and 'Federal' recordings

When Clyde McPhatter died at the age of 41, he left a legacy of twenty-two years of recording history. Clyde's earliest redordings which were made for the King-Federal label are contained in this collection. (except for those already included on The Dominoes— All Their Hits—King-5005. McPhatter is featured vocalist on the cuts on side one, on side two he functions as part of the group.)

McPhatter began singing as a choir boy at Mt. Calvary Baptist Church in Durham, North Carolina. He moved to New York City at age twelve and, when his voice changed from boy soprano to tenor, he met Billy Ward who asked him to join the Dominoes in 1950. Most of the Dominoes' hit records were recorded while he was a member of the group, many with him as featured vocalist.

Clyde left the Dominoes in September 1953 to form the Drifters for Atlantic Records and began a string of hits with "Money Honey". In 1954 Clyde was drafted and began singing as a solo at shows at various armed forces bases. He began to record as a solo with "Seven Days" which was followed by "Without Love" (later an even bigger hit for Tom Jones) and his biggest hit "A Lover's Question" in 1958.
Joining Mercury Records, Clyde has his final top ten pop hit in 1962 with "Lover Please", a song written for him by country music artist, Billy Swan. Several other Mercury releases followed and Clyde worked clubs and rock and roll revival shows until his death in New York City on June 13, 1972.

The Dominoes

Have Mercy Baby

(William Ward-Rose Marks)

Federal 12068

 

With the torrid rocker Have Mercy Baby, Clyde McPhatter unleashed every bit of gospel-derived vocal power he had at his command. Not only was it a smash for The Dominoes, sitting atop the R&B hit parade for longer than any other song of 1952, the track influenced countless young singers to come. Smokey Robinson was one.

"The first record I ever heard by them was a record called 'Have Mercy Baby.' I mean, I thought it was a woman singing the song! And I had one of these real high voices when I used to sing,” says Smokey. “Then I went to this theater in Detroit called the Broadway Capitol, and they were playing there. And I saw that it was Clyde McPhatter singing, man, and that really was inspirational to me, because I had a high voice, and the girls were going crazy over him. So Clyde McPhatter was probably like my first male idol as a singer."

Issued on Syd Nathan's Cincinnati-based Federal Records, Have Mercy Baby made it two years in a row that Billy Ward's Dominoes scored the year's biggest R&B vocal group record. The year before, it was their risqué Sixty-Minute Man with bass singer Bill Brown up front that enthralled young African-American record buyers (and more than a few white ones too; against all odds, the record charted sizably on the pop lists). But Have Mercy Baby, recorded January 28, 1952 in Cincy, was the one with the more lasting connotations, thanks to Clyde's visionary vocal. He's on fire, his fusillade of 'Yeahs!' during the wallpaper-peeling sax solo upping the excitement quotient all the more. Even before Ray Charles perfected his gospel/R&B synthesis, McPhatter was doing the same thing with The Dominoes.

Despite their mammoth success, 1952 was a year of upheaval for The Dominoes. Ward, the New York-based group's founder/pianist/composer, ran his group like a military squadron, with myriad rules and fines. Tenor Charlie White and then Brown bolted, both ending up with The Checkers. Larks bass David McNeil took Brown's place after James Van Loan, brother of The Ravens' Joe Van Loan, took over for White. But as long as Ward kept McPhatter happy, everything would be peachy.
