The Bell Tones - Hangover Blues - I've Got A New Baby Doll



Pretty tame stuff considering the subject matter. I picked this up in a box of typical 50's 45's and bought it without knowing anything about it because of the the subject matter but it fails to really deliver. That doesn't mean it doesn't have it merits. I'd say these guys were goody goody two shoes sorta like a pat boone or crew cuts or some other mild pop/rockers of the day. It must be rare because it seriously can find NOTHING about it. But who cares i guess.....???

Ace (NY) Label numbner 130 Ray Allen & The Carnations "Fool In Love dates 1959 so 1959 is my guess Not the ace (MS) label

Bob The Scared Data Miner said...

I care.

Ace records was owned by Johnny Ponz & Vincent Vallis.

Both were involved in songpoem /vanity recordings :

Johnny Ponz, pseud, of John Ponzillo, recorded Tiny Tim in 1962 before he was famous.

and Vincent Vallis recorded, on his Jody label, Hasil Adkins and the pre-Kiss band The Cellarmen.

The Bell Notes' only big hit, "I've Had It," reached No. 6 on the national charts in 1959.

Bell Notes did "I've Had It," not Bell Tones.
