New Oldies – Until by The Premiers

Here’s a vocal group from Austin, Texas. Not much is known about these guys. It was issued on Echo 6013 possibly in 1960. Echo was a “vanity” label, meaning that anyone could pay to have records pressed up from their own tapes. It was operated by Ray Poole out of his Austin Custom Recording Studios. If you find a copy of this record in really good condition, it might sell for around $1000 or so to collectors.

Listen to Until by The Premiers:

When you listen to MusicMaster Oldies, you’ll hear thousands of “new oldies” like this one. Mixed with them you’ll also hear every record that ever hit the charts in America from 1955 through 1973, along with the top charting records from England, Germany, Ireland, Canada, and Australia. There are 60’s songs from other places too, such as Japan, China, and several different countries in South America, Europe, the former Soviet Union, and even Africa. You’ll even hear some very special music from as far back as 1911, either original versions of 50’s and 60’s hits, or the biggest selling records of all time. It’s a mix of every style of music too, from Rock to Pop, Country, Rhythm and Blues, and much more. I know you’ll hear more Novelty records than you can find anywhere else (because for some of them I own the only copy known to exist!) Please give it a listen and, if you like it, tell all your friends!

Every time I hear this song by the Premiers it hauntingly reminds me of a much different tune from the 1990’s by a Milwaukee group, The Bodeans, called Still The Night. The similar part is the chant that is sung by the audience. It’s always fun to see these guys perform live! I think I first saw them at Summerfest. If you get a chance to attend Summerfest in Milwaukee, I highly recommend it. Lots of music and fun.

OK, wait, I’ve got one more! You’ll hear that same “Wha-ooh” chant in this song too. Here’s Why Did You Do This by Sheri Drake With The Vernonaires on Hilltop 1877 from 1962:
