The Crests
(members

Coed  Epc-101 - The Angels Listened In - 1959 Tracks: The Angels Listened In / Flower Of Love /// 16 Candles / Six Nights A Week.

 

"I have recently discovered information about the first single released by The Crests after Johnny Maestro left the group.  In the autumn of 1961, The Crests recorded "Guilty" and "Baby I Gotta Know".  The single was released in December 1961 and peaked at #102 on Billboard's Hot 100. It is widely thought that James Ancrum sang lead on those two songs, but it was actually Tony Middleton (lead singer of The Willows ~ "Church Bells May Ring") who sang lead."
