Wrong day but great sound

On CBS Sunday Morning, there was a bit about the surge in oldies concerts. They visited Little Anthony and the Imperials (grandfathers now) in their old neighborhood, where Anthony showed the reporter their favorite venue, the subway stairs, which they liked because the echoes added to their sound.

Here is a great example of that street corner harmonic sound that launched so many groups in the late 50’s and early 60’s.  The Spaniels had a short career, but they gave us this wonderful version of what was already a classic (from the 40’s).
