1961 (No date is noted explicitly, but the class years of the group
members would indicate the period as 1961-1963; the notes indicate
that Jobesamong othersis leaving, probably putting the
release in early 1961.)
Released as a 12 33 1/3 LP only (12-5933, M8OP-5933/M8OP-5944,
Printing and albums by MacMurray Press, NY.
The liner notes reference this as being recorded live at the Tick
Tock; a recently found contact sheet containing other photos from
the same night confirms that. Also, there is a reference in a Saints
marketing brochure of the same era to it being produced by RCA Victor,
and while the matrix numbers are consistent with RCA Victor custom
numbers, there is no indication on the package that RCA Victor was
Bass 1: Jack Jobes (Leader), Dave Geis, Doug Lawrence, Wally Wasmer,
Tenor 1: Dick Moloy, Dick Romano
Bass 2: John Butler, Al Martin, Bruce Williams
Tenor 2: Bob Clarke, Tom Funicello, Tom Hanewald, Jon Kingsepp
The liner notes say that this is the first time the Saints hold
center stage on a recording despite the existence of the earlier
Saints-only record, Saints. Also, there is a reference in a Saints
marketing brochure of the same era to this being the fourth
album. However, it can only be the fourth if the 1954 recording
of the Saints WEEI-Boston radio broadcast "Transcribed"
is included, even though it was never released commercially.
