Cadets Jacks & Flares: Evolution Of A Vocal Group
Title: Evolution Of A Vocal Group
Label: Jasmine Records

THE JACKS, aka THE?CADETS, from L. A. , were the Modern/RPM group of labels' top vocal group in the mid-50s. Although both groups featured identical personnel, their lead singers differed; Willie Davis usually led The Jacks, while Aaron Collins and/or Dub Jones fronted The Cadets. They also backed artists like Donna Hightower, Young Jessie and Richard Berry, whilst various group members later recorded as The Flares, The Peppers and The Thor-AblesThis unique compilation traces the evolution of the group, and presents the very best of their output between 1955-62, across nine different record labels, featuring their hits 'Why Don't You Write Me?' (as The Jacks), 'Stranded In The Jungle' (The Cadets) and 'Foot Stompin' (Part 1)' (The Flares). This body of work has never been thus compiled before, making for a unique package, and several of these sides are making their CD debuts.
