The Flares: Foot Stompin' (CD)

​(ACE Records) 26 Tracks - 1960-1963 - 12 page booklet - 

The act of marching through sandboxes full of pebbles, to give a pop recording some snappy aural appeal, has been pursued on more than one occasion. Guitarist Les Paul toyed with the gimmick on Walkin' And Whistlin' Blues, Young Jessie sashayed elegantly across Shuffle In The Gravel, whilst the Solitaires left a memorable impression with their high-steppin' Walkin' Along. In 

1961 the medium was unexpectedly brought back into the public consciousness by Foot Stomping Pt 1, a chunky R&B workout courtesy of the Flares led by Aaron Collins. It was typical fun fodder of the time - basic, unpretentious and capable of standing lots of plays on radio and on jukeboxes. In its wake came the Encore Of Foot Stompin' Hits album, renowned for its cover shot featuring the group decked out in matching custard lake tuxedos - here with an 'alternate take' from the famous photo shoot. Surprisingly the twelve-track LP set found a British release on London-American in February 1963. It is the choicest of those sides that now surface here, along with the best singles for Felsted and Press (and three previously unissued tracks). Together, they make up the very first collection by the Flares in digital form. 

Sitting amongst the ripest of cherries are some less obvious but highly impressive sides such as the impassioned What Do You Want If You Don't Want Love, the doo wop of Loving You and the slightly quirky, Rock & Roll Heaven Pts 1 & 2. The vocal group's recondite history, encompassing the Flairs, the Coasters and the Cadets, is assiduously explained in Bill Millar's accompanying text. In addition, lovers of all-things West Coast will appreciate the groove cooked up by sidemen Plas Johnson, Ray Johnson and Earl Palmer. 

The title track no doubt struck a chord with film producer John Waters, as he used the song on the soundtrack to his classic movie, ?îHairspray'. In fact the Flares' indentation must have left its mark even earlier, because judging by the hob-nailed boots featured on their breakthrough hits, the Dave Clark Five and the Honeycombs probably bought copies as well. 

Ace Records' highly enjoyable CD confirms there was a great deal more to the Flares than Foot Stomping, even if their solitary hit must have frustrated manager and producer Buck Ram in terms of emulating the success of stable-mates, the Platters. Nevertheless this unique set by the Flares nicely complements the rest of the Buck Ram series: Crash The Rockabilly Party by Benny Joy (CDCHD 703), Buck Ram's Doo Wop (CDCHD 735) and Rock All Night (CDCHD 763).

Artist description "Flares, The"

The Flares

Foot Stomping

Although The Flares were a descendant of The Flairs, the Los Angeles group who made some terrific mid-'50s sides for the Bihari brothers' Modern label and boasted three great lead singers in Cornel Gunter, Young Jessie, and Richard Berry (they're on our 1953 edition of 'Street Corner Symphonies'), none of the original

members were present when they cut the two-part Foot Stomping. That workout was instead fronted in tandem by two ex-members of another mid-'50s Modern group with a higher-profile track record, The Jacks (aka The Cadets), tenors Aaron Collins and Willie Davis (he was born October 30, 1932 in Dallas, Texas).

Platters mastermind Buck Ram had started working with The Flairs when Gunter was fronting them in 1955, producing their '56 sides on ABC-Paramount with a realigned lineup before Cornel's departure (he soon would join The Coasters). There was a 1957 single on Ram's own Antler logo before bass George Hollis and baritone Thomas Miller united with Davis and Collins in an incarnation of The Cadets on Sherwood and Jan-Lar. They also cut for Ensign as The Peppers.

When The Flares reemerged in 1960 on London's Felsted subsidiary under Buck's supervision with the spelling of their name altered, Hollis and Miller were joined by Robbie Robinson, Eddie King, and Beverly Harris of The Harris Sisters. That was the likely lineup on Loving You, The Flares' first Felsted single, and maybe the followup Jump And Bump as well.

But when The Flares made Foot Stomping (Collins was its author) at Liberty Studios in December of '60, Aaron and Willie were there with Tommy, George, and diminutive newcomer Patience Valentine. Producer Ram wasn't satisfied until they overdubbed actual stomping feet on a board to pound the concept home. Part 1 was a #25 pop hit in the autumn of '61. Felsted's Walt McGuire set up the Press label for Ram's productions. The Flares had seven Press singles, the last fronted by Cookie Jackson (she succeeded Betty Collins - Aaron's sister and half of The Teen Queens with sister Rosie - who came in after Valentine, who waxed four early '60s solo singles for Sam Cooke's SAR label), and an album there. They disbanded in '64. Collins died March 27, 1997; Valentine in 2000, and Davis on February 20, 2011.
