"The One I Love," Joey and Rodge with the Crystelles. We recorded it about 1958 on the Tabby label.
Attached is a photo of the Crystelles (I'm lower left) from about the time of the record and a pic of the 45.
I'm one of the singers in the group the Crystelles.
It was a pleasant surprise to hear it again after all these years on Jim Taylor's Doo Wop Heaven. BTW, we did a superior version of Danny & the Juniors' "Sometimes" (B side of at The Hop) back then- never made it commercial- still doing it today.
55 years later I'm recreating this sound again with my group- The Bel Airs.
We're New England's premier doo wop vocal quintet.

I'm the lead singer on "Come Go With Me. I did a record hop with the Del Vikings in AmbridgePAabout 1956.

Here is a Vanson Leather Jacket that I purchased in 1996, I have tried it on but never worn it in public.
I believe that Marlon Brando wore a Vanson Motorcycle jacket in The Wild One.
So what you see is a very heavy quality Leather jacket signed by members of the Coasters and The Shirelles (Doris (8-2-41 to 2 -4-2000), Jaunita, Eloise.
I saw them when they were teenagers at the State theater in the late 50's.
I also saw The Coasters during the 50's at The State Theater in Hartford CT.
I can read and recognize Thomas Curley Palmer and Carl Gardner (April 29, 1928 - June 12, 2011) was an American singer, best known as the foremost member and founder of The Coasters autographs.
If you recognize some of the other than signatures of Doris and Juanita and Eloise of the Shirelles.
You can help me out by identifying ALL of the signatures please email me at:I have information on who signed your Vanson Leather Jacket
