Colored People® Network Presents...The Silhouettes

 

The Sillhouettes



Doo-Wop originated in the '40s in African American communities and became maintream in the '50s and 60's. The Orioles helped develop the doo-wop sound with their hit "It's Too Soon to Know" by Deborah Chessler (1948).

 

Some of the popular groups and their songs:

1954 The Penguins - Earth Angel

1954 The Wrens - Come Back My Love

1955 The Rainbows - Mary Lee

1955 The Valentines - Lily Maebelle

1957 The Monotones - Book Of Love

1957 The Charts - Dance Girl

1958 The Danleers - One Summer Night

1963 The Crystals - Da Doo Ron Ron

 

To name a few...
The Silhouettes - The Silhouettes were a Philadelphia doo-wop and soul group best known for their self-penned song Get A Job, recorded in 1957 and a number one hit on the R&B and pop charts in 1958.

Elaine Lewis, widow of Silhouette Rick Lewis was an integral part of the group's revival in the 1980s and who is now releasing a brand new CD compilation of the groups music.

 

Elaine was born in Philadelphia, PA. and as a child picked up the guitar right away, parents bought her a uke when she was around 10. She says: "Thanks to Elvis Presley being all the rage. I figured out chords on my own, I later found out that what I was playing were real chords--C, Em, G and so on. Later was given a really cheap guitar with a chord book and learned all the chords from that and I played by ear and played along with the radio and records..."

The CD took a year to complete, and Elaine had material on every kind of medium--records, reel-to-reel tapes, MP3's, cassette tapes, CD's, even her phone's voice mail had material.

 

The CD is very creative, a fabulous tribute to the group and a wonderful collectors item.

 

We are honored to have her with us on Sunday, November 6, 2001 at 3PM Pacific /5PM Central/6PM Eastern.

Greetings Family,

It is with great sadness to hear of the death of Heavy D who real name is Dwight Arrington Myer  who passed away on November 8, 2011.  The New York-born rapper died at a Los Angeles hospital Tuesday after collapsing outside his home. He was 44. The titular member of Heavy D and the Boyz.  which had great hits as "Now That We Found Love," "Who's the Man" and "Somebody for Me." He was one of the genre's top stars in the late 1980s and early 1990s.   Heavy D will be truly missed and his music will always keep him a Legend...RIP Heavy D We Love You!
