GENE CHANDLER BEGAN PERFORMING DURING THE EARLY 1950s WITH THE GAYLORDS. IN 1957 HE JOINED THE DUKAYS. IN 1961 THE DUKAYS RECORDED “THE GIRL IS A DEVIL” FOR THE NAT LABEL. THE FOLLOWING SESSION RESULTED IN FOUR SIDES MOST NOTABLE “NITE OWL” AND “DUKE OF EARL”. NAT RECORDS RELEASED “NITE OWL” WHICH BECAME A SIZEABLE R&B HIT IN 1961 BUT CHOSE TO SHOP AROUND “DUKE OF EARL” WHICH WAS PICKED UP BY VEE-JAY RECORDS AND RELEASED IN 1962 UNDER THE NAME OF GENE CHANDLER. THE SINGLE SOLD A MILLION COPIES IN UNDER A MONTH. GENE TURNED HIS ATTENTION TO SOUL MUSIC THROUGH THE ‘60s AND RECORDED FOR MANY OTHER LABELS OVER THE YEARS BUT HAS NEVER STRAYED TOO FAR FROM HIS DOO WOP ROOTS AND STILL PERFORMS TODAY. V.GOOD ****
