4 Kings of Cleveland— Willingly & It’s not the en of the World — are great!
Thanks to you for being part of such great music. Regrettably I’ve not heard either side. A news article says the group was formerly The Nomads but it appears they are unlisted in the book. Group members are listed as Jim Allen, Don Allen, Dick Maness & Buz Miller.)
The scans confirm both the group spellings and the titles. Much appreciated.
What about “It’s Not The End of the World” by the Four Kings of Dayto,Ohio.?
Label location and some sources say Cincinnati (owner: Harry Carlson). 45cat says Cleveland and my post is under Four Kings (Cleveland). I need more information if the group is from Dayton? Can you help and maybe offer some group member details?
All the members of the group lived in Dayton,Ohio , not Cleveland. However, Mr. Carlson office evidently was in Cleveland.
Post changed to group location. Your information is always welcome.
