This is one of the favorite doo wop songs by one of the favorite doo wop artists. The Dell Vikings (aka Del Vikings, Del-Vikings, Dell-Vikings) formed in 1955 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where all the members were stationed in the U.S. Air Force. The group throughout the years has had many personnel, group name, and label-affiliation changes. “Come Go With Me” was recorded in 1956 was first issued on the Fee Bee label and then on the Dot label. The members included Clarence Quick, who also wrote the song, Krips Johnson, Norman Wright, David Lerchey, and Joe Lopes (on guitar). (These are the same group members for their other 1957 hit “Whispering Bells.”) In 1957, the “Come Go With Me” became a hit, peaking at #4 on the Pop Chart and #2 on the R&B Chart. The song earned an RIAA Gold Record and was later featured in the films American Graffiti, Stand by Me, and Joe Versus the Volcano. If you listen closely at the end of the sax solo, you can hear the player sneaking away from the microphone to create his own “fade-out.” The echo effect is called a “slap back,” which is an early recording technique used to evoke the sound of city alleyways. It has become a classic and a juke box must-have.
