Various Artists – A Night At The Apollo


A live recording on Vanguard of a night of performances from the Apollo Theatre in Harlem.  It sounds as though it is from the early-mid 50s.  I don’t remember where I got this LP from, but it is a UK press.  Liner notes are by Langston Hughes.  The artists featured are the Apollo Band Of The Year featuring Joe Newman on Trumpet, Coles & Atkins (tap dancers), George Kirby (impersonations & comedy), The Keynoters (vocal quartet), Moms Mabley (comedy).  Also included is the amateur show with Leonard Reed as the MC.  This features Pearl Jones (gospel singer), Danny Rogers (pop songs), Doreen Vaughan (blues singer) & reigning champs The Heartbreakers (Rock & Roll). Check out the Doo Wop stylings of the Heartbreakers.
