The Carltons - I´m A Man - Argo

60s SoulPosted by Martin Tue, April 06, 2010 09:52:39

Lead singer Larry Bell together with Jimmy Diggs and Jerry Norris formed The Carltons who released three singles on the Chess subsidary Argo during 1964-65. Their first releases was very much in the popular Impressions vein, but on this their final record they seem to have found their own formula with a slightly different approach to the lead and the backup harmonies, a shame that they could not go on a discover it further. The Carltons hailed from Washington D.C. but somehow got connected to the Chicago label, most likely through Jimmy Diggs, who recorded as one of the Knight Brothers ( "Tempation About To Get Me") for Chess records during the mid 60s and who also was a native of the U.S. capital. Enjoy!
