ABOUT LITTLE ANTHONY:
Little Anthony & the Imperials enjoyed one of the longest career runs of any R&B group, adapting their honey-smooth style to fit the sweet uptown soul sound of the mid-'60s. They enjoyed unusual longevity for an act of that type, having hits in both the R&B Fifties and the soul-music Sixties. They outlasted their peers by virtue of “Little Anthony” Gourdine’s powerful, beseeching vocals and the consummate professionalism of the Imperials, who mastered a broad range of material and knew how to work a stage. All totaled, Little Anthony and the Imperials placed 20 singles on the pop or R&B charts in three different decades – a formidable record of achievement for this durable vocal group. They received the Pioneer Award from the Rhythm and Blues Foundation and have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. For more information, visit revivermusic.com.
