The Moonglows…. Over And Over Again…. (1956)

"Cry Like I Cried" written by Archie Johnson & Gordon Powell was recorded on October 1957 by the Harptones, one of the best of the early R&B/doo-wop group.

The Moonglows were a doo-wop group based in Cleveland, Ohio. Alan Freed named them 'the Moonglows." Lead singer Harvey Fuqua served as the group's leader and chief writer. Vocals were split between Bobby "Lester" Dallas and Fuqua, and sometimes, in the group's occasional duet leads, both. The other members were tenor Alexander "Pete" Graves and bass Prentiss Barnes, with Billy Johnson on guitar. "Sincerely" was their first big hit.

The Accents, (Hollywood, Calif.) "Little Bitty  Pretty One" was the obvious inspiration for the Accents' sole hit "Wiggle Wiggle" in 1958 and though the similarities were evidently not sufficient to warrant a lawsuit, Aladdin took the expedient step of covering the song with a group called the Chestnuts. Personnel : James Jackson (Lead) Israel Goudreau Jr.(Tenor) Robert Draper Jr. (Tenor) Jimmy Jackson (Baritone) Billy Hood (Bass) Arvid Windell Garrett
