WHEN WE GET MARRIED * THE DREAMLOVERS * HERITAGE 102 * USA

The Dreamlovers were Morris Gardner, Tommy Ricks, Cleveland Hammock Jr, and brothers James Ray Dunn and Cliff Dunn, five guys from Philadelphia (a sixth member, Donald Hogan, joined the group later) who had started out singing as The Romancers. Sometime later calling themselves The Midnighters, they backed Chubby Checker on many of his Cameo Parkway sides including The Twist.

The groupís first release was on Len, followed by two on V-Tone, before they signed to Heritage; their first of three on the label was the above When We Get Married written by group member Donald Hogan. When We Get Married a beautiful Doo Wop ballad proved to be their biggest (only) hit reaching #10 on the national charts.
