Fidelitones (Various Spellings)

Fidelitones (Detroit) (ref Freddie Gorman & Brian Holland) (No scans found. Listing/book spelling.) 

– Pretty Girl/ Game Of Love, ’58 (Aladdin 3442-unissued)

– Is It Too Late (Aladdin-Unreleased)

Group spellings from various sources include Fidelitones, Fideletones and Fideltones.  The Aladdin group involves Freddie Gorman (from Detroit and formerly involved with Sax Kari & The Quailtones), Brian Holland and Sonny Sanders.  Holland and Gorman later wrote for Berry Gordy (i.e. Please Mr Postman).  Gorman became a member of the 1966 era Originals (not included in the book).  With this capsulated history, it appears unlikely Gorman’s Fidelitones/Fideletones were part of the other two groups.  Scans are needed to confirm group spelling.
