PICK 3 From Little Anthony & the Imperials

These guys were one of the very few groups that could still successfully release hits against the British Invasion. Jerome “Anthony” Gourdine, known as Little Anthony had a unique voice and several incredible songs. Picking three was not easy, but let’s begin…

“Going Out of My Head” would be on everyone’s list, so take a minute to remember how great this song is.

Not so obvious is one of my favorites entitled “Take Me Back”. This is a remarkable melody, with terrific lyrics.

One of the interesting things I note about this group is that although The Imperials were ‘only’ the back up singers, they were a very important part of the act with their very involved vocals and their fantastic dance routines. Watch these videos and enjoy their moves.

Another ‘love gone wrong’ tune is my favorite named, “Tears on My Pillow”. This one really shows Little Anthony’s range. EMJOY, and excuse while I go seek out “Hurts So Bad” and “I’m on the Outside” to complete my collection.

This is FUN!
