The Flamingos, 1961: Uncle Marv | tc010

The Flamingos were formed by Jake and Zeke Carey in around 1952. After short periods with other labels they signed with Chess records in 1955, and immediately had a huge hit with “I’ll be home” (covered by Pat Boone) and other hits with “The Vow” and “Would I be crying”. In 1956 singer Tommy Hunt joined the group. They left Chess records in 1957 and continued a long and successful career, winning many awards.

Please help: Can anyone please identify a picture of The Flamingos in their Chess line-up. Thankyou
