Billy Storm and The Valiants

This is one of my favorite albums. Its the perfect mix of jungle vibe vocal group sounds (lover, lover) and screaming rockers (good golly miss molly, frieda frieda).

This is a real "gateway" lp for people who are "doo wop" curious.

Billy Storm had an amazing voice that has the power to transport you to another plane of reality.

Extra bonus for the amazing last track that just has to be heard to be believed. Needless to say, it reminds me of "home"...

(sorry for the shitty picture of the LP, but it's the best one I could find, and I was too lazy to get out the digital camera to take a pic of my copy)


Also, be sure to check out for some insight into one of my favorite records; Hooty Sapperticker by Barbara and the Boys.

Thanks to colin for fixing the picture a bit....


  1. Thanks! For info on the Valiants and some related groups, check out Marv Goldberg's site:
    He doesn't mention the "screwdriver" song, though. Do you know where it is from?
    Thanks again!

  2. on the back of the record it says something like, "screwdriver courtesy of rex records" yadda yadda...

    not sure if it was ever released as a 45 by some other group?

  3. awesome stuff, kogar. thanks!!!
