Probably the most deserving doo-wop group (after the Tokens). The most commercially successful of the doo-wop groups. Even though most of their songs were covers, their popularity and constant presence on the American music scene helped further popularize R&B music and perpetuate rock'n'roll. Yes to the Diamonds.

"Little Darlin'" is an excellent track. Should be in the Song Hall of Fame.

A belated R.I.P., to Dave Somerville. The Diamonds weren't innovative or even important, but they certainly did more respectful covers of rock and roll songs than contemporaries like The Crew Cuts and Pat Boone. I especially enjoy the Diamonds' treatment of The Stroll, which was used so memorably at the finale of the 1986 horror flick Night of the Creeps.
