The Pastels In-depth Biography

Doo wop} group the Pastels} formed in 1954. At the time, lead DiFosco "Dee" Erwin}, first tenor Richard Travis}, second tenor Tony Thomas}, and baritone Jimmy Willingham} were all stationed at a U.S. Air Force base in Narsarssuak, Greenland, and their first live appearances were in conjunction with military showcases. According to {%Marv Goldberg}'s profile in the December 1977 edition of Yesterday's Memories}, all four Pastels} were eventually transferred to Washington, D.C., and following a well-received performance at the USAF's annual "Tops in Blue" talent show, the group decided to pursue a record contract, eventually landing with the small Hull} label. Their debut, "Been So Long,"} hit retail in November 1957, and when it seemed poised for breakout success, Chess Records} licensed the disc for national distribution, reissuing the single on its Argo} subsidiary a month later. In early 1958, "Been So Long"} reached the R&B} Top Five, also crossing over to number 24 on the Billboard} pop} chart. After extensive touring as part of DJ Alan Freed}'s Big Beat Show, the Pastels} returned to the studio to cut a follow-up, "You Don't Love Me Anymore."} The record failed to match the success of its predecessor, however, and when their third Argo} release, "So Far Away,"} met the same fate, the group dissolved in early 1959. Dee Ervin} returned to his native New York City and mounted a solo career, scoring a 1963 hit with his cover of the World War II-era favorite "Swinging on a Star."} ~ Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide
