ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
GERRY GRANAHAN
17 June 1939, Pittston, Pennsylvania, USA. Granahan was associated with the 50s groups Dicky Doo and The Don’ts and The Fireflies and also recorded under his own name. Granahan started out as a disc jockey in his home-town before switching to a music career. At the age of 17 he began recording demos for Elvis Presley at the latter’s Gladys Music firm. He recorded an unreleased single under the name of Gerry Grant in 1957. The following year he co-wrote a song called “No Chemise, Please” and recorded it under his name for Sunbeam Records; it reached number 23 in the summer of 1958. That same year Granahan also reached the US charts as a member of the Fireflies, who just missed the top 20 with the ballad “You Were Mine”, on Ribbon Records. Gerry also led Dicky Doo and The Don’ts, a quintet, that charted five times on Swan Records, first and most notably with “Click Clack”, a novelty rock ‘n’ roll song Granahan co-wrote with Dave Alldred, ex-drummer of Buddy Knox and the Rhythm Orchids. In later years Granahan became a producer for such artist as “Jay and the Americans”, “The Angels”, “Santo and Johnny”, “Linda Scott”, “Patty Duke”, and ran his own Caprice label, whose roster at one time included Linda Scott, The Angels, James Ray and Santo and Johnny (the latter actually signed to the related Canadian-American label). In the early 90s he was running his own GPG Studios based in Warwick Rhode Island. Currently Gerry and Charlie Quintal have teamed up to reform their production company from 1987 GRANAHAN – QUINTAL PRODUCTIONS

Awesome
What a blast this CD is - not only is Gerry Granahan's voice sublime but the songs swing. Listen up and listen a lot.

JIMMY SYLVIA

BEST OF DICKIE DOO & THE DON'TS
COMPILATION IS EXCELLENTLY RE-MASTERED; LOOKING
FOR NEE NEE NA NA NU NU FOR AGES. I DON'T KNOW
IF THE AVERAGE PERSON REALIZED THAT IT WAS
A CATCH PHRASE FROM A JONATHAN WINTERS' ROUTINE,
AND WAS VERY POPLULAR WITH US TEENAGERS. NOT
TO MENTION THE BACKING BAND WAS COOKIN' FOR
A SOLID SOUND FOR THE PERIOD. THE REST OF
THE SONGS ARE DECENT ALSO. LOTS OF MEMORIES......

Mr. Frank

WHERE`S "BECAUSE OF MY PRIDE"- FIREFLIES??
It`s ONLY their BEST record. Other than that....Excellent CD, Best Sound I Ever Heard On The Hits, Great Choice Of Songs, Very Interesting Combination Of Groups & Very Refreshing In This Day & Age Of Manufactured, Sterile Garbage That Passes For Music.
