Possibly the biggest oversight by the Hall thus far. I'm just a casual Clovers fan, but I would argue that they are just to historically important to the early development of the music to have been left out this long.

I'd agree with that comment about the Clovers. Love Potion No. 9 and Love, Love, Love are both semi-seminal 50's R&B songs, and they gave us a lot more besides those two.

Do the people that induct these artist know anything about Rock and Roll. The Clovers had their music covered by countless American singers and later by the British singers. This was one of the most influential groups in Rock and Roll history.

FYI, the Clovers were having R&B hits as far back as '52... so first year eligibility should be 1977 (1978 ceremony)

Sonny Til and The Orioles are in. It only makes sense that one of Atlantic's important vocal goups The Clovers should be in too.
