(Rhino/Murray Hill) 14 tracks (5 newly remastered in Stereo) - In order to examine the way rock ´n´ roll began as a marriage of black and white popular musics. one need only look at the number of racially mixed vocal groups that emerged dunng rock´s chaotic origin. The first to gamer national recognation was Pittsburgh´s Del Vikings who scored with Come Go With Me in late ´56 early ´57. But the group that would enjoy the longest run of hits with a mixed line up was Johnny Maestro And The Crests There would be others (The Marvels immediately comes to mind). but none succeeded in establishing a sound as well as Mr. Maestro and company. The Crests began as a black quartet in 1955. Patricia Van Dross. Harold Torres. Talmadge (Tommy) Gough and J.T. Carter formed the group at P.S. 160 Junior High School in Manhattan; Carter. originally from Brooklyn. lived on Delaney St. and the rest (all from Staten Island) lived in the Allred E. Smith projects in nearby Chinatown. Singing for local functions without a permanent name, the group naturally emulated the singing idols of the day. Harlem´s Cadillacs. Harptones. and Teenagers. At the same time. Brooklyn.born Johnny Maestro (or Mastroangelo. as he was christened) from near. by Mulberry St. was already singing in a racially integrated group —a necessity, according to Maestro. There just weren´t too many white kids interested in singing black R&B in lower Manhattan at the time. Maestro met the future Crests at the Henry Street Settlement House in 1956 and joined them soon after. ´Street´ vocal groups would seek any place that offered a good echo to add timbre and depth to their a capella singing. One natural refuge was the subway. One day in 1957 the group. recently named The Crests at the suggestion of member Carter. was in the subway practicing some of the gospel harmony they had been studying. A woman. riding the train from Brooklyn. heard them singing at the Brooklyn Bridge station The wife of arch´ estra leader Al Browne. she gave her husband´s business card to the group at the subway station. The group kneew that an Al Browne had backed up one of their favorite groups. The Heartbeats. and rushed to contact him. Browne knew the owners of a miniscule record label. Joyce Records. Maestro claims that Joyce Records was two guys who ran the company from the back of a record store in Brooklyn. something quite believable given the history of many of New York´s small independent record operations at the time. The group wrote both sides of what would be their last single. My Juanita , Sweetest One: and future royalty payments notwithstanding (Maestro claims the sum of $17.50 for this single). Sweetest One - actually made the national pop charts. peaking at #87 in July 1957. Two other recordings from that session. No One To Love and Wish She Was Mine were released on Joyce a few months later without fanfare or sales. While recording for Joyce. the group was intro-duced to singer. songwriter.rarranger Billy Dawn Smith. Smith was impressed with the group and brought them to the attention of music publisher George Paxton. With the group now signed to him— minus Patricia Van Dross, who as a 15-year-old girl was not allowed to travel with the boys—Paxton formed Coed Records in early 1958. Compared to Joyce. Coed was it big league operation. Paxton had contacts throughout the industry and provided the group with some Al the best writers and arrangers on the scene, including Luther Dixon. Bert Keyes and Otis Blackwell. Coed 501 Pretty Little Angel by The Crests— inaugurated the label. While it got local airplay and local chart placement. national atten. Lion was not to be. The group´s next release. however. was a different story: it would not only twome one of the best-selling ´oldies´ of all time, but the source of some controversy in the payola hearings that would take place two years atter its release That classic. 16 Candles was originally called Twenty One Candles before someone with marketing sense aimed the song at the burgeoning teenage audience. Trade ads of the day state that the record ´broke´ immediately; it was later shown that when Dick Clark bought it share of the publishing in the song. the record began being featured almost daily 011 American Bandstand. and success followed directly. The song peaked at 12 on the national charts and The Crests were on their way. Appearances with Clark and Alan Freed. among others. strengthened the group´s stage acumen: their show featured some
