Revolutionary Road. Chart-Toppers of the Forties. Billboard Pop Memories Billboard 40s. The History of Rock Times, Volume 1: Jones' permanent replacement was to be Bill Kenny's brother and fraternal twin Herb Kenny.
Herb Kenny sang with the group from to when he went out for a career as a solo artist. McDonald was previously the Ink Spots' personal valet, a job given to him by Herb Kenny with whom he had sung in a group called "The Cabineers" in the early s. Watson went on to form a group similar in style to the Ink Spots called the Brown Dots which later became the Four Tunes. Watson's place was filled by Billy "Butterball" Bowen who sang with the group from to In , Fuqua left Kenny to form his own vocal group using the name "Ink Spots".
Fuqua however did not go by this name and in defiance of the court ruling called his group the "original" Ink Spots. After being with the group for only a few months, Williams was replaced by Ernie Brown. Barksdale stayed with the group for about a year before being replaced by baritone vocalist and guitar player named Jimmy Cannady.
This lineup of Kenny lead tenor , Brown 2nd Tenor , Cannady baritone and guitar , and McDonald bass lasted until when the final change of lineup was made. Disputes over the rights to use the Ink Spots name began in the late s, resulting in many court cases. Some groups contained original members Fuqua, McDonald, Bowen, or Watson, but most had no ties to the original group whatsoever. Many groups claimed to have the rights to the name, but no one did.
Still, lawsuits were filed between various groups and there was great confusion as to who owned the naming rights. According to writer Marv Goldberg : "The original group was a partnership, not a corporation, and that influenced [Judge Isidore Wasservogel] to say, in , that when Hoppy Jones died in , it effectively served to terminate the partnership and that no one could truthfully use the name after that.
Choate ruled that since so many groups had been using the name "Ink Spots" it had become "public domain" and was free for anyone to use. Fuqua recorded dozens of singles with his group for King Records as well as releasing two LP long play albums for Verve Records. Fuqua led and was a member of various vocal groups calling themselves "The Ink Spots" until his death in Watson, who had been forced out of the original Ink Spots in and briefly sang with Charlie Fuqua's Ink Spots in —, started his own vocal group using the name "The Ink Spots" in Watson made numerous recordings with his "Ink Spots" groups in the s and s.
Many of recordings Watson made with his groups were released and re-released on various low budget labels. Watson led various groups until his death in Some singers have tenuous ties to Deek Watson's or Charlie Fuqua's offshoot groups; many, with no credentials whatsoever, claim to be original members.
In the Ink Spots were the first African Americans to appear on television; then in they continued to be television pioneers by becoming the first black performers to appear on Ed Sullivan's successful TV show. The clip and outtakes can be found for viewing on various websites.
This footage can be obtained by British Pathe. In Snader Telescriptions produced five "soundies" also known as music videos of the Ink Spots. Recordings by the Ink Spots have been featured in the popular Fallout video game franchise. Their recording of "Maybe" was used as the opening theme of Fallout , as well as in the epilogue. Still others were included in Mafia II and on the in-game radio stations in L. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
