Little Anthony and the Imperials is an American rhythm and blues/soul/doo-wop vocal group from New York, first active in the 1950s. Lead singer Jerome Anthony “Little Anthony” Gourdine was noted for his high-pitched falsetto voice, influenced by Jimmy Scott. The group was one of the very few doo-wop groups to maintain success on the R&B and pop charts well throughout the 1960s. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 4, 2009, 23 years after the group’s first year of eligibility for induction.

Over the decades, in a measure of their profound influence, several of The Imperials’ hit songs have been covered by numerous other artists.

Hurt So Bad, an Imperials’ Top Ten smash, was covered by Linda Ronstadt, as well as the Lettermen, and the Delfonics.
I’m on the Outside (Looking In), a Top 20 hit for the Imperials, has been covered by the Miracles, Johnny Mathis, Amy Winehouse, the Lettermen, and the Jaggerz.
Tears on My Pillow, the Imperials’ first million-selling hit, has been covered by Bobby Vee, Lou Christie, Martha and the Vandellas, Bobby Vinton, Neil Sedaka, Reba McEntire, Lorrie Morgan, Kylie Minogue, and the Fleetwoods.
Goin’ Out of My Head, another Top 10 hit and Little Anthony and the Imperials’ signature song, has had over 50 different cover versions by other artists, including the Delfonics, Vic Damone, Petula Clark, Sergio Mendes and Brazil ’66, Ella Fitzgerald, Lou Christie, the Lettermen, Frank Sinatra, and the Miracles.

The Flamingos starring Terry Johnson are a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame doo-wop group most popular in the mid- to late 1950s and best known for their 1959 cover version of I Only Have Eyes for You. Universally hailed as one of the finest and most influential vocal groups in pop music history, the Flamingos defined doo-wop at its most elegant and sophisticated. “Elegant vocals”, “musical pioneers” and “living legends” are all terms used by legions of music lovers to describe the Flamingos.
