WVON LP Label Scan

I found this LP in pretty messed up condition and without a sleeve, but just couldn't resist this label. This is a comp of pretty straight forward doo wop and early R&B songs (like the one below) put out by legendary Chicago radio station WVON, which was owned by the Chess brothers. The faces around the edge are the on air personalities at that time. The Magnificent Montague, for some reason, has been punched out. For a full history of WVON (which is still on the air today), Go Here:

The Vibrations
The Watusi

Watusi is a great song by the Vibrations. Thanks got the info.

It sounds a lot like Hank Ballard and the Midnighters' "Let's Go."
Glad you dug it...
