THE DAYLIGHTERS - TELL ME (BEFORE I GO)


The Daylighters, from Birmingham, Alabama, relocated to Chicago in the 1950's to find their fortune as a doo wop group. Eventually embracing the Chicago r&b soul sounds in the early sixties (as well as once counting writer and producer Gerald Sims amongst their ranks) the group had a few minor hits that seemed close to breaking nationally. This, their fine final single, found the group reduced to just a duo (original members Tony Gideon and Eddie Thomas) showcasing fantastic vocals and chemistry between two fellas who, by this point, had been performing together for over a decade.

from 1966...
