Das Debütalbum der Heavy Metal / Progband erschien bei Vertigo-Records. Mit dem englischen Sänger John Lawton, dem Gitarristen Peter Hesslein und dem Bassisten Dieter Horns an der Front, alles gestandene Recken der europäischen Rockszene, züngelten die Hardrock-Flammen von Luciferˆs Friend in den Gefilden von Uriah Heep (bei denen Laughton ab 1977 Leadsänger wurde) und Led Zeppelin. Trotz Kritiker-Jubels musste Lawton damals auch noch bei den Les Humphries Singers mitmachen (um die Miete zu bezahlen). Eine der ersten Metal-LPs überhaupt.

Interpreten-Beschreibung "Danleers"

The Danleers

If You Don't Care

The Danleers posted one of 1958's biggest doo-wop hits with their shimmering One Summer Night (it's prominent on that year's 'Street Corner Symphonies' disc). Jimmy Weston's soaring lead tenor sold their manager Danny Webb's composition beautifully. First out on Bill Lasley's Amp 3 logo, it soon attracted the interest of Mercury Records. That summer, the group sat pretty at #4 R&B and #7 pop.

Mercury didn't do much to promote the Brooklyn-based Danleers' encores. I Really Love You b/w My Flaming Heart went nowhere during the summer of '58. Ditto Prelude To Love b/w A Picture Of You late that year and Your Love b/w I Can't Sleep the next March. The first Danleers went their separate ways in mid-'59.

Webb knew Weston's lead tenor was special. He teamed Jimmy with three members of another group he managed that briefly recorded for MGM, The Webtones (like The Danleers, Danny named them after himself). First tenor Louis Williams, baritone Terry Wilson, and bass Frank Clemens were joined by second tenor Doug Ebron, Weston's brother-in-law. Webb got the retooled Danleers a contract with Columbia's Epic imprint, hardly a bastion of rock and roll. The group doesn't seem to have been a high priority there: the A-side of their first single was cut on November 9, 1959, while its flip didn't get done until March 1.

Waxed at Columbia's New York studios with nine strings and French horns on the premises under arranger Chuck Sagle (so were R&B stalwarts Bert Keyes on keys, bassist Doles Dickens, and drummer Sticks Evans), the majestic ballad If You Don't Care was co-penned by Webb and restored Weston to the spotlight. Epic pressed it up with the B-side (I Live) Half A Block From An Angel, but it didn't change The Danleers' luck in March of '60. Epic only gave them one more try with I'll Always Believe In You b/w Little Lover that fall before cutting The Danleers loose.

In 1961, the group turned up with a single on Everest. A pair of '64 releases on Mercury's Smash subsidiary brought them full circle without renewing their hitmaking mojo. Webb didn't give up, producing two mid-'60s Danleers singles for the tiny Le-Mans label. Neither a Weston-penned Baby You've Got It b/w The Truth Hurts (arranged by New York guitarist Leroy Kirkland) nor I'm Sorry b/w This Thing Called Love copped the checkered flag so prominent on Le-Mans' logo.
