When their single “Come Go With Me”, featuring the lead vocals of Norman Wright, in early 1957, it began a 31-week run on the charts, reaching number four on the pop chart and number three on the R&B chart during the spring and early summer. The group was now in demand nationwide was booked on tours across the country, as well as a featured spot in one of Alan Freed’s Brooklyn Paramount shows.
Following on its heels, in the late summer of 1957, “Whispering Bells” reached number nine on the charts. More hits followed including, “Sunday Kind Of Love” on the Mercury label.
