• Despite their relatively short career together and an equally limited recording output, The Moonglows were one of the most important and influential doowop vocal groups of the 1950s, their career spanning the years of the rock ‘n’ roll explosion in pop as well as the time when mainstream pop artists and labels were plundering the R&B charts for potential crossover hit songs.

• Led by the legendary Harvey Fuqua, who went on to marry Berry Gordy’s sister and became a hugely successful writer and producer at Motown, and featuring his long-time colleague Bobby Lester sharing lead vocals, they recorded initially for Alan Freed’s Challenge label, before he got them a deal with Chance, and moved to Chess, with whom they scored their biggest success with R&B No. 1 “Sincerely”, which was covered by The McGuire Sisters to score a pop No. 1.

• This great-value 56-track 2-CD set comprises the A and B sides of every single they released before they parted company, their music encompassing rocking up-tempo bluesy R&B as well as smooth, immaculate ballads, with beautifully textured harmonies.

• It naturally features all their chart entries, including the R&B Top 10 hits “Most Of All”, “Sincerely”, “We Go Together”, “See Saw”, “Please Send Me Someone To Love” and “The Ten Commandments of Love”. It’s a comprehensive trawl across a brief but significant career.
Reviews For The Complete Singles As & Bs 1953-62 (2CD)
Mojo - Clive Prior
Set of celebrated and deeply romantic baritone vocal groups singles from 1953-62. Includes a young Marvin Gaye. ****
Blues & Rhythm - Tony Watson
At the time of his death, there were strong signs that Chuck was emerging as a world class songwriter. Recordings as good any release of late.
