  1. The Fabulous Futura’s were led by Gary Baermann (aka Gary Dee) while he was serving military duty in Marysville, CA. He later had different lineup of Futuras in Milwaukee with a 45 on Rampro.

  2. about the larks(north carolina group):i recently discover an lp listed by the selah singers in 1962.the larks used this name in their early years when they made a gospel concert.so the larks in a 1962 are a longtime disbanded,who is this group?
    i’m sure they’re other selah singers who recorded in the early fifties for the label in don’t remenber the name but they’re a cover on the single and its a white mixte group,(é men and a female singer)… INFO NEEDED
    ps:unca marvin said nothig about he larks after circa 1955

    • Info found for the The Selah Singers who recorded for the ‘gospel’ label in Newark NJ is @ https://discogs.com/artist/2751566-The-Selah-Singers. This group can be cross-referenced to releases on ‘gospel.’ The 1962 album front cover shot is of a male quartet. Group member were not found.

      It is possible there is some aged-facial similarity between these four members and the five ‘Jubilee’ Selah Singers (identified on various photos.) If the ‘gospel’ group contains members of the ‘Jubilee’ group, they would be a reformed group on that label. Neither discographies for the Larks (Durham NC) by Marv Goldberg or a site @ rockabilly.nl/references/messages/larks.htm connect these groups.

      There is another group of ‘The Selah Singers’ from Richmond Virginia, formed in 1969. An album photo of them is available on Discogs. This is a group of mixed male/female singers.

      Hope the above info helps.
