The Cues
Why? CD

Formed by Atlantic Records' head of A&R Jesse Stone in 1954, The Cues were one of the outstanding vocal groups of the 1950s.
Their core personnel were Ollie Jones, Robie Kirk (aka Winfield Scott), Jimmy Breedlove, Abel De Costa, and Eddie Barnes, each member a superlative lead singer in his own right.
They recorded prolifically, for Lamp, Jubilee, Groove and Capitol Records, making the US charts with Burn That Candle - which was later covered by Bill Haley & His Comets - and Why.
Elsewhere they also sung on dozens of hits of the era, incognito backing singers for the likes of Ruth Brown, Lavern Baker, Big Joe Turner, Roy Hamilton, Ivory Joe Hunter, Clyde McPhatter and many others.
This unique collection gathers everything that they recorded variously as The Cues and as The 4 Students in the 1950s, a one-off 1960 'reunion' 45rpm, credited to Eddie Barnes, and four cuts featuring them backing other artists.
