Deep River Quartet's Dick Rietveld passes.
 

On November 8, 2014, the music world lost one of its greatest proponents of quartet singing and we lost a good friend.  Dick Rietveld, great tenor/baritone for the popular Dutch vocal quartet, the Deep River Quartet, passed into eternity.  Dick suffered a massive cerebral hemorrhage and died at the age of 58.  With its unique blend of vocal harmony, the Deep River Quartet evolved into one of the premier entertaining ensembles in Europe.  The Netherlands-based group, whose career has spanned the past 40 years, was equally adept at vocal interpretations of Jazz, Spirituals, R&B and Soul classics.  With over 24 albums to their credit, the Deep River Quartet not only sang all over the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Switzerland, but also appeared in Great Britain, Indonesia, India, Singapore and the Dutch Antilles.  They’ve been favorites at the North Sea Jazz Festival and the Isle of Bute Jazz Festival in Scotland.  One of their TV specials received the highest rating ever awarded to a musical program, in the history of Dutch television.  On a personal note we've been friends with the Deep River Quartet for many years.  We toured Europe with them and they even sang at our wedding in 2005 (the group's only visit to the United States).  In addition to his enormous talent as an entertainer, Dick Rietveld was one of us - a student of vocal harmony history and a record collector.  We'll forever miss Dick's sense of humor and his friendly personality.  Dick was one of the nicest people we've ever known.  To hear Dick lead the Deep River Quartet on an Ink Spots' tune, click the YouTube "Into Each Life Some Rain Must Fall".  To read more about Dick & the Deep River Quartet and see numerous photos and more videos, visit our Dick Rietveld Tribute.  [Photo of Charlie and Dick by Pamela Horner.]
 

Giant sculpture of Buddy Holly's glasses greats visitors to Lubbock TX museum

A recent article in USA Today caught our attention, with a photo of a giant sculpture of Buddy Holly's dark rimmed glasses.  Lubbock, Texas'  Buddy Holly Center, a historical site, has dual missions; preserving, collecting and promoting the legacy of Buddy Holly and the music of Lubbock and West Texas, as well as providing exhibits on Contemporary Visual Arts and Music, for the purpose of educating and entertaining the public.  The Center collects, preserves and interprets artifacts relevant to Lubbock's most famous native son, Buddy Holly, as well as to other performing artists and musicians of West Texas.  One of three galleries, the Buddy Holly Gallery features a permanent exhibition on the life and music of Buddy Holly.  Artifacts owned by the City of Lubbock, as well as other items that are on loan, are presented in this exciting exhibition. Included in the display are Buddy Holly's Fender Stratocaster; a songbook used by Holly and the Crickets, clothing, photographs, recording contracts, tour itineraries and Holly's own glasses, recovered from the Clear Lake, Iowa, plane crash site.  We must admit, we've never visited the Buddy Holly Center, but the next time we're in Texas we'll be sure to stop by.
 

 

Acappella record pioneer Stan Krause honored in Jersey City

Jersey City, NJ, record store owner and pioneer in recording acappella groups, Stan Krause was honored for his accomplishments with a ceremony inside the city's Council Chambers on December 12.  Krause produced his first record in 1962, forming the Catamount record label, one of the premier labels for acappella doo wop groups in the 1960's and 1970's.  Stan is responsible for giving a start to groups like the Persuasions, 14 Karat Soul, the Royal Counts, the Savoys, Mixed Company and many more.  Stan opened his Jersey City record store in 1965.  He is still selling vinyl records.  For a detailed article on Stan Krause and Catamount Records, visit Beaudaddy's website.   
 
 

Motown singer, Jimmy Ruffin (1936 - 2014)

Last newsletter we reported that Jimmy Ruffin, Motown soloist and older brother of the late Temptations lead, David Ruffin, was gravely ill.  Sadly, Ruffin passed away on November 18, 2014 at the age of  78.  Jimmy Ruffin  is best known for his 1966 hit, "What Becomes of the Broken Hearted".  Jimmy Ruffin was born in Collinsville, MS, where he and his younger brother David sang with the gospel group, the Dixie Nightingales.  In 1961, Jimmy Ruffin joined Motown Records, recording one single for its subsidiary Miracle before entering the service.  In 1961, he was invited to join the Temptations, but decided to remain a soloist.  The Temptations' spot went to his brother David.  Jimmy Ruffin did have success with the recordings "What's Become Of The Broken Hearted," "I've Passed This Way Before" and "Gonna Give Her All The Love I've Got". 
 

Group harmony historian and writer, Carl Janusek (1943 - 2014)

We were shocked and saddened to learn of the sudden passing of fellow group harmony historian and writer Carl Janusek.  Carl died on Friday December 5, 2014 at the age of 71.  Carl was best known to us as a fellow writer for Echoes of the Past magazine, a publication that he contributed articles to for the past 25 years.  Carl was born in McKeesport, PA, just outside of Pittsburgh, on May 22, 1943.  He specialized in the history of R&B and doo wop vocal groups from the Pittsburgh area, and much of what we know about groups from that geographic area, we owe to Carl.  His passing is a terrible loss for our music community.

Finally - A home found for Alan Freed's ashes! 

In a past newsletter we reported that Alan Freed's ashes had been evicted from the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland.   We promised to keep you informed of any new developments.  Freed, the popular radio dee jay who popularized the term "rock & roll" died in 1965 at the age of 43.  According to Associated Press, his remains will now be interred in Lake View Cemetery in Cleveland.  Other well known figures like President James A. Garfield, John D. Rockefeller and Elliot Ness already rest there.  Freed's son, Lance, is working on an appropriate memorial monument. 
 

Is this wealthy Brazilian businessman buying up the world's supply of vinyl records?

A couple months ago we happened upon Monte Reel's article in the New York Times about Zero Freitas, the Brazilian businessman and record collector who seems to be on a quest to own at least one copy of every record ever made.  His 25,000 square foot warehouse in Sao Paolo already houses millions of vinyl discs.  Freitas has been buying record collections at an amazing clip.  Some of his recent purchases have included Pittsburgh record store owner and mega-collector Paul Mawhinney's collection of 3,000,000 45's and LP's; the late Music Man Murray's collection of 300,000 records; and the complete stock of the now-closed Colony Records (200,000 records).  Freitas has reportedly hired a team of international scouts, in places like NYC, Mexico City, South Africa, Nigeria, Cairo and Havana, to track down collections and negotiate their purchase.  A team of a dozen interns have been hired to catalogue the records.  It's an endless job, since at times, 200,000 records a month keep arriving.  I (Charlie) thought my record collecting habit was out of control!   To read the entire story of this incredible man and his collection, click New York Times article.
 

Harptones' mentor, Raoul Cita dies
 

We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of our friend Raoul J. Cita of the Harptones who died of cancer on the morning of December 13, 2014, at the age of 86.  Cita was a giant in our music, as a musician, songwriter, arranger, vocal coach and teacher and most of all as the musical director and driving force behind the Harptones, one of the greatest R&B vocal groups of our time.  Raoul J. Cita was born on February 11, 1928 in Newark, NJ, but was raised in New York City.  He started taking piano lessons at the age of five and at first was into big band music.  He first met the Skylarks (forerunners of the Harptones) around 1951 when they auditioned for a dance Cita was running at Bowman’s.  He worked with the group to perfect their harmonies.  Cita didn’t see the group again until 1953 when they returned to him for guidance.  He re-named them the Harps (later changed to the Harptones) and gave them some songs he’d written.  From then on, Raoul Cita became the Harptones’ pianist, arranger, vocal coach, sometimes tenor or baritone and overall manager and mentor.  Cita’s relationship with the Harptones lasted more than 60 years.  Raoul J. Cita worked with other groups besides the Harptones.  In the early years, he rehearsed a group called the Dreamers, who would later become the Valentines.  Cita also worked with the Joytones, Hearts (Baton label), Lyrics, Neons, Rubies, Herb Lance, Mabel King, Carol Blades, Peggy Farmer and many others.  The Royale Cita Chorus was a combination of three of Cita’s group, the Harptones, Joytones and Lyrics.  Raoul Cita also recorded a duet with Gloria Hawkins under the mane Roy & Gloria (DeLuxe label).  But one of his biggest talents was songwriting.  He’s credited with writing or co-writing almost 70 songs including, “Forever Mine,” “I Depended On You,” “Life Is But A Dream,” “Loving A Girl Like You,” “My Memories Of You,” “That’s The Way It Goes,” “Three Wishes,” "I'll Never Tell" and many more.
 

Reggae star John Holt dies at age 69.

We love all kinds of harmony and are particular fans of vocal group music from Jamaica.  We were saddened recently to hear of the passing of one of our favorite singers from the world of reggae, rock steady and ska music, John Holt died on October 19, 2014.  In the mid-1960's Holt led a Jamaican rock steady group called the Paragons (not to be confused with the doo wop group of the same name).  If you don't follow Jamaican music you may not know about Holt's group, but you surely know one of the songs he wrote and first recorded in 1967.  The Paragons' recording "The Tide Is High" was later recorded in 1980 by the rock group, Blonde and became a #1 record in the U.S.  The Paragons had a number of great harmony records.  To hear a YouTube of their original version of "The Tide Is High" click Paragons.

Book Review: "Philly Pop, Rock, Rhythm & Blues" by James Rosin

This book is a compilation and revised version of the author’s two previous books, Rock Rhythm & Blues (2004) and Philadelphia City Of Music (2006).  It is divided into several section: an overview of Philly’s music; a section with about 100 pages of annotated photos; listings of chart records related to Philadelphia and 100 page section of short bios of key Philadelphia music figures.  The strength of this book is in the first section with insight, provided by the people the author interviewed.  Rosin was astute enough to quote extensively from people like Joe Tarsia, Thom Bell, Bunny Sigler, Weldon McDougal, Dave Appell, Charlie Gracie and others.  This is an easy read for people who grew up in Philadelphia or who love Philly music,  See our full review on the Bookshelf Page of www.classicurbanharmony.net where you can also find a link to Amazon to purchase the book if you wish.

Richard Levister dies.  Early member of the Earls.  Managed the Earls and Mello Kings.

Richard "King" Levister, early member of the Earls and manager of the Mello-Kings died on Sunday December 7, 2014.  He was 87.  Earls' lead Larry Chance had this to say about Richard on the Larry Chance & the Earls Fan Club FaceBook Page.  "Richie was with The Earls in 1960, and he served as our manager for the first 3 months of 1961. He rejoined The Earls in 1964 until early 1969 as our organist. He was a master on the Hammond B3. In later years, he would often write musical charts for us, and a few of his charts are featured in the album called "The Show Goes On." I learned about dynamics and phrasing from Richie. He told me that true artists are original and that they do it their own way. I've always tried to do it my way and will never forget how much he influenced my style. He deserved much recognition for his mastery of the Hammond B3 and the work he did with groups like ours & the Mello-Kings.  He earned the nickname "King" Levister.  So sorry to hear of his passing, and keeping his family in my prayers. Gone but will never be forgotten."... Larry Chance.

Sonny Bivins, founding member of the great soul vocal group, the Manhattans (1936 - 2014)
Edward Jesse "Sonny" Bivins, tenor and founding member of the great Jersey City, NJ, soul group, the Manhattans, died December 3, 2014.  Bivins was born in Macon, GA, on January 15, 1936.  In 1950, he moved with his family to Jersey City, NJ.  He began singing with the group that would eventually evolve into the Manhattans in the late 1950's.  For a while, the group called themselves the Dulcets and in 1961 they record "Pork Chops" for the Asnes label, though their name was misspelled "Dorsets" on the label. After a few personnel changes, the group (now called the Manhattans) competed on the Apollo Theatre's amateur night, coming in third place.  That was enough to convince Joe Evens to record them on his Carnival label in 1964.  From there, the Manhattans went on to become international stars.  Sonny Bivins, in addition to being a talented entertainer, was also a great song writer.  He wrote many of the Manhattans hits, including “Follow Your Heart,” “I’m the One Love Forgot,” “I call it Love,” “Baby I’m Sorry” and “There’s No Me Without You”.  The complete Manhattans story can be found in five parts on the Soulexpress website.  To hear a YouTube of the Manhattans singing Bivins' composition, "I'm The One Love Forgot" click Manhattans.  [Photo courtesy of Jeanie Scott.].
 

Winfred "Blue" Lovett dies a week after fellow Manhattans' Sonny Bivins

As if things couldn't get any sadder for friends and fans of the Manhattans, a second founding member of the group, Winfred "Blue" Lovett, died on December 9, 2014, just six days after the passing of Sonny Bivins.  Lovett was 74.  A talented singer and composer, Lovett wrote the Manhattans' hit song, "Kiss And Say Goodbye".

Dave Appell dies at 92.  Famous Philadelphia musician, songwriter, arranger, producer

Dave Appell, famous musician, arranger, songwriter and producer, died November 18, 2014 in Cherry Hill, NJ.  He was 92.  One of the true pioneers in pop music, David Appell was born in Philadelphia on March 24, 1922, and grew up in the Fishtown section of the city.  He began playing ukulele as a youngster and then took up playing the trombone, guitar and keyboards.  During WWII he served in the Navy, where he played in several Navy bands.  He also wrote arrangements for Jimmie Lunceford, Earl ‘Fatha; Hines and Benny Carter.  After the war, Dave played in his own group, the Dave Appell Four.  This combo would evolve into Dave Appell & the Applejacks.  Dave and the Applejacks appeared in the 1956 Alan freed movie, “Don’t Knock the Rock”.  By 1957, Dave and his group had joined Cameo Records and backed Charlie Gracie on “Butterfly” and “Fabulous”.  The Applejacks charted with their own records, "The Mexican Hat Rock" and “Rocka Conga” in 1958.  Dave and the Applejacks soon became Cameo/Parkway’s house band, recording behind Chubby Checker, Bobby Rydell, the Dovells, Dee Dee Sharp, the Orlons and many others.  As a songwriter, Dave Appell co-wrote “Let’s Twist Again” (Chubby Checker), “The Bristol Stomp” (Dovells), “South Street” (Orlons) and “Mashed Potato Time” (Dee Dee Sharp).  In later years, Dave produced “Knock Three Times” and “Tie A Yellow Ribbon” for Tony Orlando.

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inducts the Five Royales.  Spinners and Marvelettes turned away.

In a move that surprised most of us, the Rock & Roll Hall of fame inducted the great R&B vocal group, the Five Royales, as an early influence.  We applaud the Rock Hall for their selection, as the Five Royales' bluesy harmony was certainly an influential sound in the development of R&R.  The group from Winston-Salem, NC, started singing gospel as the Royal Sons Quintet in the mid-1940's but after their first recording for the Apollo label in 1952, switched to R&B, changing their name to the Five Royales.  Though they released more than 40 singles, the Five Royales are best know for the songs, "Dedicated To The One I Love," "Think," "Baby Don't Do It" and "Tears Of Joy".  While the Five Royales were selected as early influence inductees, the Spinners and Marvelettes, both on the regular ballot, failed to get enough votes.
 

Joseph Carioti, lead of the Delmonicos dies

Sorry to report that Joseph J. Carioti, lead singer for the Delmonicos has died.  Joe passed on November 15, 2014 after a long illness.  He was 72.  The Delmonicos first got together in 1959 in Manhattan.  The original members were Joe Cariati (lead), Nick DiBona (second tenor), Gary Knight (bass), Victor Rodriquez (first tenor) and John Martin (baritone).  In the early 1960’s the Delmonicos recorded for the AKU label, first backing Denise Germaine on “Teenage idol” and then on their own with “There they Go” b/w “You Can Tell”.  In 1964, the Delmonicos recorded “The World’s biggest Fool” b/w “Until You” for the Musictone label.  The Delmonicos eventually became inactive as a group but got back together in 1986 to perform for the United in Group Harmony Association.  In the 1990's, they recorded for Ronnie I’s Clifton Records.
 

Mickey Champion, blues and R&B singer (1925 - 2014)

Mickey Champion, the Los Angeles blues and R&B singer who began singing almost 70 years ago, died on November 24, 2014.  She was 89.  Born Mildred Sallier in Lake Charles, LA, she began singing with a gospel trio.  After graduating high school, she married Norman Champion and moved to Los Angeles.  There her singing career took off in the clubs along Central Avenue.  She performed with Johnny Otis, Percy Mayfield and Roy Milton (whom she later married).  Mickey recorded with Roy Milton for the labels Modern, Dootone and King.  Group harmony fans most like Champion's recording with the Nic Nacs (actually the Robins under another name) "Found Me a Sugar Daddy" (RPM label).  To hear the record on YouTube, click Nic Nacs.  Champion also recorded with a vocal group on the Lilly label ("Wait For Me").
 

Charlie Gaskin of the Allures (1943 - 2014)

Charlie Gaskin, lead singer for the acappella group, the Allures, passed away on September 14, 2014.  He was 71.  The Allures recorded a number of great acappella songs for the Starlight label.  Charlie had previously sung with the Lovenotes on the Wilshire label ("Our Love Song," "Gloria") in the early 1960's.

Book Review: “Ralph Peer and the Making of Popular Roots Music,” by Barry Mazor

 
No matter how much we think we know, every so often a book comes along that forever alters our perception and understanding of our chosen field.  This book was a real eye-opener for me (Charlie), and I’ve been studying the history of popular music all of my life.  Ralph Peer was the first A&R man and record producer & publisher to recognize the commercial potential in regional American roots music – black music like blues, jazz and gospel - and white music like folk, gospel and what would become Country and Western.  From 1919 until his passing in 1960, Ralph Peer was a giant in the recorded music industry.  His legacy stretches from Mamie Smith’s “Crazy Blues” in 1920 (the first blues record recorded by an African American) to Buddy Holly’s  “That’ll Be The Day”.  This is a deep read but music historians and those with a strong interest in early American roots music will love it.  .See our full review on the Bookshelf Page of www.classicurbanharmony.net where you can also find a link to Amazon to purchase the book if you wish.
