|The Charts were originally formed as The Thrilltones in Harlem,
New York in 1956, and comprised teenagers Joe Grier (lead), Stephen
Brown (first tenor), Glenmore Jackson (second tenor), Leroy Binns
(baritone), and Ross Buford (bass). They were signed to the Everlast
label, owned by record producer Bobby Robinson's brother Danny, who
released their first single "Deserie" in May 1957. The song's
authorship was credited to Cooper and Johnson, although singer Joe Grier
later claimed that he had written the song along with the group's other
material. The group appeared on the PBS special Red, White, and Rock in
2002. The group was Grier, Binns, and two then-current members of the
Del-Vikings, Dickie Harmon and Butch Phillips.
