£8.99

THE GENIES were a short-lived DooWop group who dented the US Top 100 in 1959 with their very first release, 'Who's That Knocking', and ceased trading a year or so later after cutting a handful of 45s.

DON & JUAN were a DooWop vocal duo who registered a massive, million-selling hit with 'What's Your Name' in early 1962, but were unlucky with follow-ups.

The link between The Genies and Don & Juan was the lead voice of Claude Johnson, a vastly underrated singer and above average songwriter who, despite these two brushes with success, remains something of a mystery man.

THE GENIES were a short-lived DooWop group who dented the US Top 100 in 1959 with their very first release, 'Who's That Knocking', and ceased trading a year or so later after cutting a handful of 45s.

DON & JUAN were a DooWop vocal duo who registered a massive, million-selling hit with 'What's Your Name' in early 1962, but were unlucky with follow-ups.

The link between The Genies and Don & Juan was the lead voice of Claude Johnson, a vastly underrated singer and above average songwriter who, despite these two brushes with success, remains something of a mystery man.

The Genies' other 'main man' was singer Roy Charles Hammond, who later became well known as Roy 'C'.

This compilation anthologises all the known recordings of The Genies and Don & Juan to the end of 1962, and also features a couple of Hammond's spinoff Genies-oriented projects.

These sides are all collectors' rarities, many of which are hard to find elsewhere on CD.
