Clyde McPhatter: Clyde McPhatter's Greatest Hits (LP)

(Polygram Australia) 12 tracks - Hit after Hit after Hit - 1980s Australian high quality re-issue of this great 1965 Mercury Vinyl Album.

Veteran status in the world of recorded music can imply many things: There are many performers who never quite make the big time. There are those who live off one success for years on end. There are many who gain mild recognition from time to time. Others, however, have scored continu-ally. Today's crop of teenagers would refer to most of these artists as old-timers.

Naturally there are exceptions to the rule: Clyde McPhatter has proven to be a fantastic exception in this department. The songster is one of the only performers who receives equal amounts of adoration from the teenagers and adults. In addition, the hits that Clyde has piled up have been more than impressive. His popularity, which began with the rhythm and blues field, soared to 'recorded heights' in the pop field—as the rock 'n roll movement swept away the barriers built up over the years. The tunes assembled herein attest to Clyde's 'lasting power.' They are a collection of hits cut after joining the Mercury roster, and recreated to bring you hours of enjoyment.

Each song is caressed with the 'from the heart' sincere styling of the R/B-Pop 'King.' The never-to-be-forgotten while-back triumphs include the rhythmic 'Money Honey', the enticing 'Sixty Minute Man', and the emotion packed beat ballad hip swinger 'Without Love'. In the recent vintage category, it's the contagious TA TA, the rockin' shuffler 'Little Bitty Pretty One', and the sizzling twister, 'Lover Please'. Clyde has not only passed the test of time (running the pulsating blues to sock-rock gamut; on the wax scene, but has also done so, with flying colors, on the personal appearance level as well. A glimpse of the enthusiastic crowds that swarm around Clyde today at New York's famed Apollo

Artist description "McPhatter, Clyde"

Clyde McPhatter

The Dominoes

No lead tenor was as monumentally influential to the future of R&B vocal groups as The Dominoes' Clyde McPhatter. He was the first to incorporate an overt gospel influence into his impassioned leads, influencing everyone from Smokey Robinson to Aaron Neville to most of Clyde's successors with The Drifters. If it had been up to Billy Ward, the Dominoes' iron-fisted founder, Clyde would have reined in his sanctified tendencies and sounded like The Ink Spots' Bill Kenny. Thank goodness Clyde didn't listen to his boss. Ward was born September 19, 1921 in Savannah, Georgia but mostly grew up in Philadelphia. A gifted piano composer at age 14, he went on to study music at the prestigious Juilliard School. After an Army stint, Ward was working in New York as a vocal coach when he met talent agent Rose Marks. The two would co-manage The Dominoes until her 1955 death.

The group started out as The Ques in 1950, Ward bringing together McPhatter (born November 15, 1931 in Durham, North Carolina), tenor Charlie White, baritone Joe Lamont, and bass Bill Brown. Clyde sang in the choir at his mother's church, and after his family moved to New York in 1945, he harmonized with The Mount Lebanon Singers (White was also a member). But McPhatter harbored secular ambitions. He competed in the Apollo Theatre's weekly amateur contest, singing Lonnie Johnson's Tomorrow Night. Ward's authoritarian approach whipped the group into shape in a hurry. They won the Apollo amateur show, emerged victorious on the radio program 'Arthur Godfrey's Talent Scouts' by crooning Goodnight Irene, and got signed to King Records' brand-new Federal subsidiary (Ralph Bass was persuaded to leave Savoy and head Federal by King boss Syd Nathan). That's when The Ques name bit the dust. The Dominoes made their first session for Bass in New York on November 14, 1950.

Their debut single, issued shortly before year's end, was also Federal's inaugural offering. It paired the upbeat Chicken Blues, fronted by bass singer Brown, with a Clyde-led Do Something For Me that was the first volley in a soulful revolution, even if pianist/arranger Ward didn't care to encourage it. The deliberate tempo of Do Something For Me, credited to Ward and Marks, allowed Clyde to work sanctified magic with its pleading lyrics. The rest of the group, all ex-gospel singers, pitched in sympathetically abetted by shimmering guitar. The shattering ballad blasted up to #6 R&B over a ten-week span that commenced in February of '51.

The Drifters

Great as they were, Clyde McPhatter's Drifters weren't the first black vocal group to use the name. There were several that came before. Recording for songwriter Otis Rene's Excelsior label in Los Angeles, these Drifters beat Clyde to the punch by a couple of years. While their sound looked backward to the 1940s rather than forward the way McPhatter's visionary outfit would, their Honey Chile was a lighthearted charmer, the polished group riding a backdrop built around bouncy piano and winding electric guitar. The other side, the Rene-penned Mobile, was bluesier and more lowdown, though hardly back in the alley. By 1953, there could be no doubt who owned the name. But these Drifters ably kept it warm until McPhatter and his crew broke out like gangbusters.
