The Moonglows

The Moonglows were an influental American R&B and doo wop group, featuring such legendary singers as Bobby Lester[?], Harvey Fuqua[?], Alexander Graves[?] and Prentiss Barnes[?], along with guitarist Billy Johnson[?]. Originally known as The Crazy Sounds and The Moonlighters, they were renamed by Alan Freed. Their first hit was "Sincerely" (1954), which was followed by a series of R&B hits for Chess Records, including "Most of All" and "Please Send Me Someone to Love". The band's success had dried up by 1961, and didn't score any hits until a reworked version of "Sincerely" hit the charts after reuniting in 1972.
