Ink Spots

THE INK SPOTS. Popular vocal group of the 1930-1940s that helped define the musical genre which led to rhythm & blues and the subgenre doo-wop. They and the Mills Brothers another black vocal group of the same period, gained much acceptance in the difficult white community. They first started recording with Victor records in 1935, but did not score their first hit until 1939 with "If I Didnt Care". Follow up Decca songs included ; "Address Unknown" (1939) / "My Prayer" (1939) / "When The Swallows Come Back To Capistrano" (1940) / "Whispering Grass"(1940) / "Do I Worry" (1940) / "Java Jive" (1940) / "Shout, Brother, Shout" (1942) / "I Can't Stand Losing You" (1943) / "Cow Bow Boogie"(1944) and The "Gypsy" (1946) which was their biggest  success, staying in the No1 chart position for 13 weeks. The group had countless lineup changes before finally disbanding in 1964.
