GUM DROP * OTIS WILLIAMS AND HIS NEW GROUP * DE LUXE 6090 * USA
Otis Williams first recorded with the Charms on Henry Stone's Rockin' records # 516 Heaven Only Knows, which was also the first issue on the new 6000 series of De Luxe records in 195 3 when Stone went into partnership with Sydney Nathan of King Records. In 1955 the partnership was dissolved and Henry Stone persuaded the Charms to leave Otis Williams and De Luxe and join him on his new label Chart. For six issues, the above was the second, until he won a court case against Stone for the use of the name The Charms, Otis Williams styled himself Otis Williams and His New Group.
