A multi-racial Doo Wop group from Brooklyn, THE IMPALAS were all still in their mid-teens when they cut their first record, 'Sorry (I Ran All The Way Home)', which became one of the biggest hits of 1959. A wildly underrated group, they were unfortunately destined to break up less than two years later, although their trump card - lead singer, Joe "Speedo"?Frazier - went on to record as a solo artist during the 60s. This compilation reissues their LP, also titled "Sorry?(I Ran All The Way Home)", which included their follow-up hit, 'Oh, What A Fool', plus their subsequent 45s, including their final release, on which they were billed as "Speedo & The Impalas". Also included, for reference purposes only, is a 45 by another, unrelated vocal group named The Impalas, which has provoked considerable debate and erroneously features in their discographies. Their non-album singles are particularly rare, and five of these tracks - including both sides of the "rogue" Impalas' disc - make their CD debuts herein.
