DREAMIN' AND SCHEMIN' * THE ACCENTS * BRUNSWICK 9-55100 * USA
During the late 1950s and early 1960s there were quite a few groups going by the name The Accents, this seems odd to me as accents doesn't strike me as a particularly good name. Jay Warner in his American Singing Groups writes about a Jewish DooWop group called The Accents from Brooklyn, but no mention of The Accents who recorded the above Dreamin' And Schemin'. Dave Rimmer on his Soulful Kinda Music lists two other Accents, neither of which recorded on Brunswick.
Released in October 1958, the first of two by The Accents on Brunswick, Dreamin' And Schemin' is a fine Doo Wop ballad that seems now to belong to a timeless period of sound, one that achieves a kind of richness and depth through analog and the use of valves; it's the B side to a pretty good up-tempo cut, Wiggle Wiggle, which sounds like it takes it's queue from Thurston Harris' Little Bitty Pretty One.
