Little Anthony and The Imperials (End Records, 1960)

Little Anthony and the Imperials (formed in 1958) is an American doo-wop and rhythm and blues band who enjoyed success in the late ‘50s and ‘60s with a string of chart hits including “Tears on My Pillow”, hailing from Brooklyn, New York, U.S.

Little Anthony and the Imperials were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April 2009. They are the only pop group from the 1950s to have retained 75 percent or more of their original members. It all began back in 1957 when a Brooklyn doo-wop group known as the Chesters consisted of Clarence Collins, Tracy Lord, Nathaniel Rodgers and Ronald Ross -- and Gourdine, a former member of the Duponts, joined as lead vocalist. Ernest Wright replaced Ross, and the group recorded briefly for Apollo Records.

They broke out in the 1950s, but Little Anthony and the Imperials still have a lot to say today -- on and off the record. That’s because the group, who performs at the Las Vegas Hilton for one night only Saturday, has reinvented itself from a recording group into consummate performers who not only showcase their classic hits, but also bring a large repertoire of music from contemporary to rock and roll, R&B, pop, pop rock and Broadway.
