Nobles Groups

Nobles (Sapphire Group) – Do You Love Me/ Who’s Been Riding My Mule, ’56 (Sapphire 151)

  • Who’s Been Riding My Mule appears on Crystal Ball Records (Doo-Wops From Chicago) # 60290.
  • An ad promoting the release locates the Sapphire label in Chicago:

Sapphire Record Co.

32 No State St, Chicago, Ill.


Nobles (Connecticut)

Nobles (Connecticut) (Nicky & The) – School Bells/ School Day Crush, ’58 (Gone 5039, Times Square 37, ’64 & Relic 544, ’66)


Nobles (Connecticut) error – Schoolhouse Rock/ A Way To Tell Her, ’58 (End 1021)

  • The End release is by Nicky De Matteo.
    • De Matteo is from Philadelphia.
  • Since the Roulette GG-59 label scan of Schoolhouse Rock claims to be a reissue of the original End #1021, it is miscredited asby Nicky & The Nobles.
    • The teenage sounding Nicky DeLano/Nobles is a different person than Nicky DeMatteo.


as Timbres – Oops, Oh Lawdy/ Stop Crying, ’58 (Cupid 1002)

as Timbers – Oops Oh Lawdy/ Stop Crying, ’58 (Tee Gee 101)

Nobles (Massachusetts?) – Oops Oh Lawdy/ Stop Crying, ’58 (Tee Gee 101)

  • No scans were found.


Note:  The book listed the ABC-Paramount group of Nobles and the Tee Gee group together.  In addition, they linked the entry to the Timbers on Cupid (Massachusetts).

  • There are scans for the Nobles on ABC-Paramount, with the Tee Gee 101 and Cupid 1002 asby The Timbers/Timbres.
  • None were found asby The Nobels on Tee Gee 101.
  • I heard a soundbite for ‘Oops, Oh Lawdy’ and ‘Standing Alone’.  Both The Timbres/Timbers and Nobels sound like the same group.
  • Additional info is welcome.
