The Flamingos: Requestfully Yours - Sound Of The Flamingos (CD)

(West Side) 24 tracks

ENDLP 308: "REQUESTFULLY YOURS" ...was issued in October 1960 and was the only Flamingos album to be released solely in mono. (However. many of its tracks were originally recorded in stereo. and those that were appear in the latter format here). It was released almost simultaneously with their second album "Flamingo Favorites". Producers Henry Glover and George Goldner had been working with the group on these LP projects during several lengthy recording sessions throughout 1960. The result was that both sets contain many tracks never released as singles. The Cover of "Requestfully Yours" captured the essence of the group, showing two pink flamingos (birds, rather than group members!) in a lush scene of water and flowers. It easily conveys the serene mood and beautiful music to be found on the accompanying vinyl record.

The track selection for this album features 6 songs issued as singles prior to its release, and 6 other which appeared only on the LP. The singles were "I Was Such A Fool" (End 1062) from December 1959. "Nobody Loves Me Like You Do" (End 1068) and "You. Me And The Sea" from (End 1068 and 1070) from April 1960. "At Night" (End 1073) from June 1960. and "Beside You-/"When I Fall In Love" (End 1079) From September 1960. The uptempo "Nobody Loves Me Like You Do" chartedon Billboard for 3 weeks (peak #23) in the spring of 1960. Five of the six remaining tracks were recorded together during a February 1960 session. Whereas "Never In This World" was recorded in May 1960 The entire selection - a sampling of singles, plus newly recorded standards - were all Flamingo requests!

ENDLP 316: "THE SOUND OF THE FLAMINGOS" ...was released in April 1963. and in both mono (LP 316) and true stereo (LPS 316). Its cover displayed the LP title simply presented against a background of swirling purple. lavender and white colours. The album's selections. all listed on the front cover, featured the second Flamingos group on End. It continued their albums series as produced by Henry Glover and George Goldner. filled with standards in the smooth style of the Flamingos.

All 12 tracks on this album were recorded in the spring of 1963.1 Know Better" (End 1021). released in April 1963 and "01' Man River" (Roulette 4524), released in October 1963, were the only two tracks issued as singles. "It's Too Soon To Know" was appropriately chosen as the lead track. The legendary Orioles originally sang it in 1948. issued on the It's A Natural and Jubilee record labels. The Flamingos' rendition is a tribute from one classic vocal group to another. The song and performance can be said to provide an encapsulation of Glover and Goldner's concepts and albums for the group. Interestingly, there were plans for a fifth album, "The Spiritual And Folk Song Moods Of The Flamingos- (ENDLP 317) which was never produced. Fortunately all four of their albums that were are now available once again via Westside. bringing you the sound of the Flamingos!

The Flamingos

Nobody Loves Me Like You

The Flamingos were on the roll of their career. The Chicagoans had been recording since 1953, first for Chance and then Parrot and then Checker (where they hit in '56 with I'll Be Home and A Kiss From Your Lips) before signing with Decca in '57. Then they landed at George Goldner's New York-based End Records.

Founders Jake (their bass singer) and tenor Zeke Carey were still on board when The Flamingos signed with End, along with original baritone Paul Wilson and lead tenor Nate Nelson, who came in during their tenure on Parrot. Future soul star Tommy Hunt was there, as was tenor Terry 'Buzzy' Johnson, who doubled on guitar. He and Wilson co-wrote and co-fronted the group's first End hit Lovers Never Say Goodbye. Both that and their '59 smash I Only Have Eyes For You, their career peak (it's on our previous edition), were dreamy ballads. Sam Cooke's pen provided an upbeat change of pace.

"I had asked Sam to write us a song, because I loved Sam Cooke," says Johnson. "We were very dear friends. And I wanted a song like 'You Send Me' or 'For Sentimental Reasons,' all those beautiful slow ballads that he sang. And I was waiting for him. He said, 'I'll write you a song! I'll write you a song!' He had his own office. He had really elevated in life. He said, 'I'll write you a song.' And every time we'd see him, I'd say, 'Where's the song?' He'd say, 'I'm working on it.'

"One day at the Regal Theater, Sam came in and he said, 'Buzzy, give me a guitar! I got your song!' And he played it, and it was slow, the way he did it. And George Goldner heard it fast. And I liked it slow, because it had more of a feeling. But then George Goldner wanted it to sound more like 'Shout,' those chords.

And Sam didn't mind. He said, 'Well, just get the song out there. I don't care.'"

Released in February of 1960 as Nobody Loves Me, End quickly repressed Cooke's tune, led by Nate and Terry, as Nobody Loves Me Like You (Besame Mucho gave way to a Johnson-penned You, Me And The Sea as the flip). Nobody Loves Me Like You rose to #23 R&B and #30 pop.

The Flamingos  scored four more charters at End, but Mio Amore, a lilting Your Other Love (a Drifters-styled Doc Pomus/Mort Shuman composition), Kokomo (which they'd previously cut for Parrot), and Time Was failed to crack the Top 40. Hunt, Johnson, and Nelson left before the end of 1961, Hunt scoring a solo hit that year for Scepter with the dramatic Human. The Careys pointed The Flamingos in a soul-oriented direction that led them back to the R&B charts in '66 with The Boogaloo Party. Nelson died June 1, 1984; Wilson passed May 6, 1988; and Jake and Zeke Carey left us in December 10, 1997 and December 24, 1999 respectively.
