One Summer Night

by The Danleers
     
 
Brooklyn's Danleers had a single hit, the brilliantly moony "One Summer Night." The 25 performances here trace the group's attempts to recapture the spotlight on a variety of labels (Smash, Mercury, Epic, etc.) from 1958 to 1964. Lead singer Jimmy Weston's smooth, full-throated performances on pleading pop ballads make The Danleers

Overview

Brooklyn's Danleers had a single hit, the brilliantly moony "One Summer Night." The 25 performances here trace the group's attempts to recapture the spotlight on a variety of labels (Smash, Mercury, Epic, etc.) from 1958 to 1964. Lead singer Jimmy Weston's smooth, full-throated performances on pleading pop ballads make The Danleers perfect for slow dancin'. But "I Can't Sleep" is up 'n' at 'em, and 1960's "Little Lover," with its twangy guitar, sounds like the inspiration for Elvis's "Little Sister" a year later. It has fine sound, plus a history of the group by Peter Grendysa in a sixteen-page booklet. ~ Mark Humphrey, Roundup Newsletter
