Let Me In, Again! 1955-1962 More Roots Of Philadelphia Soul
- Unit Price
The Sensations were an R&B/DooWop vocal group from Philadelphia, formerly known as The Cavaliers, made up of three guys and a girl, which was an unusual line-up for the mid-50s.
Their personnel comprised Yvonne Mills (lead), Tommy Wicks (tenor), Tommy Cooke (baritone) and Alphonso Howell (bass).
They recorded for Atlantic subsidiary Atco between 1955-58 and made the R&B charts with 'Yes Sir, That's My Baby' and 'Please Mr Disc Jockey', before breaking up.
In 1961 Mills (now married, and renamed Yvonne Baker) and Howell reformed the group, with new members Richard Curtain (tenor) and Sam Armstrong (Baritone).
Recording for Chess subsidiary Argo, they charted with 'Music, Music, Music' and 'That's My Desire', and their biggest, crossover Pop/R&B hit, Yvonne's quirky 'Let Me In'.
Here, for the first time on one CD, are all The Sensations' recordings for Atco and Argo, between 1956 and 1962.
