Based in L.A., The Olympics are arguably one of the most underrated R&B vocal groups of all time, and one of the few bands in rock & roll history to successfully straddle the line between music and comedy.

This release features their first two original LPs, which were recorded for the Arvee label between 1959 and 1960 : 'Doin' the Hully Gully' and 'Dance by the Light of the Moon'. These two essential albums have been packaged together in this very special collector's edition, which also includes 5 bonus tracks from the same period.

With their humorous lyrics, funny voices, and up-tempo beats, the band's style was reminiscent of The Coasters (although they had their own sound and were far from clones) - and few acts of the '50s and '60s could match the chilling excitement of The Olympics' R&B recordings.

The Olympics: Walter Ward (lead vocals)
Eddie Lewis (tenor vocals)
Melvin King, Thomas Bush, Charles Fizer (baritone vocals)
Recorded in Los Angeles, between 1959 and 1960. Produced (and mostly composed) by Fred Smith and Cliff Goldsmith
