£9.00 £6.00

The “5” Royales were one of the greatest of all the R & B groups. Their ground breaking sides for Apollo from 1951 – 55 are rightly highly regarded for being amongst the very first to marry the rhythms and instrumental stylings of the blues with the vocal fire of gospel music. This innovation was not just daring and controversial but also highly successful – the Royales had five top ten hits including two number ones in a very short space of time.
