The Carltons

Argo Record’s answer to The Impressions, The Carltons were James Leon Diggs, Larry Bell and Jerry Norris. Leon Diggs was already contracted to Chess (with Richard Dunbar) as the Knight Brothers. The first single to be released under the name The Carltons was “Ooo Baby” b/w “Can’t You Hear the Beat,” in May 1964 (Argo 5470). There were other releases but they did not succeed and the act was abandoned.
