One of the early mixed groups (two Blacks, a Jew, a Pole and a Puerto Rican), the 5 Delights had a couple of hit singles in the late 1950's. This recording was made in a basement with one monaural mike in 1960 'while the guys passed around a bottle of J &B,' according to the legend. Drawing material from a variety of sources, the group compiled a diverse set list: 'Begin the Beguine,' 'You Send Me,' 'Smoke Gets In Your Eyes' and 'I'm In The Mood For Love' are highlights. Some tunes, such as 'Whatcha Gonna Do,' have a gospel feel; 'Dearest Darling' is a smooth slow dance number.
