Featured Artists - The "5" Royales (Part One)

Recording first as gospel group the Royal Sons for Apollo, The "5" Royales released a string of great rhythm and blues tunes throughout the 50's for Apollo and King.  Among the revered artists who forged the path to soul music, Steve Cropper's tribute record last year highlighted the guitar and song writing talents of group member Lowman Pauling, while Johnny Tanner's lead vocals are also a real treat.

More tunes coming up later this month.
