“They say that time heals all wounds but all it’s done so far
- Ezbeth Wilder
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Though I somehow do not remember this song at all, I thought I'd use today.
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0yPzcHu4TVI - Long Lonely Nights - Lee Andrews & the Hearts, 1957
|Lee Andrews & the Hearts was a
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, US, formed in 1953. They recorded on the
Gotham, Rainbow, Mainline,
United Artists, Grand and Gowen labels. Managed by
Kae Williams, in 1957 and 1958 they had their three biggest hits,
"Teardrops", "Long Lonely Nights" and "Try the Impossible". The group
consisted of Lee Andrews (lead), Roy Calhoun (first tenor), Tammey
Currey (second tenor), Ted Weems (baritone) and Wendell Calhoun (bass).
Lee Andrews was born (1938) Arthur Lee Andrews Thompson, at Goldsboro, North Carolina. Questlove, drummer and producer for the Grammy Award-winning hip-hop group The Roots, is Lee Andrews' son, and cites growing up with doo-wop as a major influence in his music.

Jacque Ray Fisher - Class of 1966 :-)
Oh, Jacque, I'm so sorry to learn this. Thank you so much for letting me know.
No, I had no prior knowledge of it. Every morning I read the obituaries carried by the Daily Press, but the others I would know about only if someone told me. Either way, they would appear first here - http://www.nnhs65.com/NNHS-Newsletters-2015.html - and then if they were members of the Classes of 1954 to 1971, I would list them here - http://www.nnhs65.com/memoriam-all.html.
If you don't see them either place, I am still in the dark.
