Wow... I am the first to say anything !! They were one of the very few racially integrated musical groups to have any success in the 1950s. That is quite an accomplishment wave back the.... They were a true inspiration to many future groups.. I know the Beach Boys did a version of their big "Hit Come Go With Me",,, They can really sing I will say that!!! I still enjoy their music 50 years later...!REAL ROCK AND ROLL

Look in the Little Anthony And The Imperials thread. I mentioned that LAATI didn't even make my Top Ten deserving doo-wop acts not yet in. I mentioned the Del-Vikings there.

Come go with me is a classic Rock and Roll song. You can hardly pick up a book written about the early days of Rock and Roll and not know about this song and the Del Vikings.
What is wrong with this election process?
So many important groups and singers left out the the Hall Of Fame for so long.
Come Go With Me was such a huge it, Radio stations were playing the song more than 10 years after it's initial release on a regular basis on oldies shows.
