Another example of a young group whose brief public exposure was over almost before it began, the Velvet Angels' career began in '62 or '63 and was history by '65. These recordings, some done at the Madison Hotel and the rest while the group practiced in a basement, reveal a gospel/R & B/doo-wop blend. For example, 'Jungle Fever,' an original written by Velvet Angel Robert Calhoun (he wrote many of the groups songs with Cy Iverson) is heavy on the gospel side of the scale, while 'Be Ever Wonderful''s lead is decidedly soul; 'Since You've Been Gone' is uptempo finger-snappin'doo-wop, with the lead singing high at the top of his range. It's a shame that this is the sum total of the group's professional output.
