The Clovers

When you talk about the real roots of rock and roll, one name that most stands out is THE CLOVERS! Founded by Harold Lucas, they began singing together in high school and signed with Atlantic Records in 1950, beginning an unbelievable string of fifteen number one records on the Rhythm and Blues charts, influencing every vocal group that followed throughout the ensuing decades.

Over the years, some members voluntarily left the act, but Harold Lucas kept touring and recording with carefully-chosen replacements, and by the 1980's, the act had evolved to Harold Lucas, John Bowie, Johnny Mason and Steve Charles. It was this combination of personnel that recorded both "Run Rudolph Run" and "The Magic Of Christmas Eve" and released them on "A Capitol Christmas", a compilation album of R&B artists from the Washington DC area.
