The Dells


Beginning as a five man outfit of skilled Doo-Wop crooners in 1953, the Dells first hit the chart jackpot with "Oh, What a Night," a simmering bit of lush balladry that showcased the band's ability to weave their vocals into plush, layered harmonies. A near decade-long hiatus followed, but their status as a hit-making factory was cemented in the mid-1960s when they churned out a series of hits that shook off Doo-Wop's genteel mannerisms for the grittier sounds of Soul. Led by the contrasting voices of Marvin Junior and Johnny Carter, the Dells' songs traded lead vocals between the gruff 'n' tumble Junior and silky voiced Carter, resulting in a patchwork of sound that was both dynamic and compelling.
