Chanells – Give Me A Chance, ’63 (Times Square 24)
- ‘(Give Me A) Chance’ also appears on various comps as the Pharotones/Pharo-Tones.
- All versions I’ve heard are the same as ’The Chanells’ version for which there is a label scan.
Information on the Pharo-Tones version indicates the title was done originally on Timely 1002 (circa 1958).
- There is a ‘Timely’ label (square printing) for that time period and another Timely label with a different style in the early 50s.
- The earlier Timely 1002 was a Gay Tunes release in 1953 for (Thrill of Romance/Wh-y-y Leave Me This Wa-ay-ay.)
Both Pharotones and Chanells are male groups and difficult to tell if they are the same group or different. Does anyone know the story?)
