Overview

One of R&B's great pioneering groups sparkles on these early-'50s hits featuring three great lead singers: Clyde McPhatter, bass singer Bill Brown, and McPhatter's replacement Jackie Wilson. Brown boasts of his sexual prowess on "Sixty Minute Man" and fronts the equally infectious "Pedal Pushin' Papa." Clyde McPhatter shows his versatility on stirring ballads and jumps including the terse "I Am With You," the handclapping, sax blowing "That's What You're Doing to Me," and the pleading "Have Mercy Baby." Jackie Wilson's biggest Dominoes' hit "Rags to Riches" features a devastating opening operatic note. McPhatter's last Dominoes release, a remarkable version of "These Foolish Things," features Brown's low groaning bass under McPhatter's probing tenor embellished by imaginative backing vocals that made every Dominoes recording special.
