High Seas - Sunday Kind Of Love / We Go Together - DMG 4000 - 1960




This is the High Seas, on of my Uncle Adrian's bands. He is back row, second from the right, my Uncle Bill is far right (handsome dudes, right?) My Aunt Anita's brother John is back row, second from the left. Funny, both Uncle Adrian and John were called Sonny by their families. I saw the other Sonny (John) at Uncle Adrian's funeral. He kept telling me how beautiful my mom was (over and over and over)! He must have had a heavy duty crush on her "back in the day"!

My dad took these photos for them in our living room.

The band started out as Little Al and the Uniques. Then just the Uniques. When they started touring with Jan and Dean, they got a new manager who wanted them to change their name. They became the High Seas. Uncle Bill joined the army and left the group.

Uncle Bill continued to play guitar and he had a voice like Elvis. He sang all the old Elvis songs when ever we were around.

  2. Oh, I enjoyed these songs! A talented bunch of guys for sure. I still like that style of music! And I remember how popular those 1950s style of living room curtains were too, lol!

    1. The drapes are a real giveaway! My folks actually had the danish modern end tables that we had in that house from 1957 or 58 in their attic! Definitely going to clean those babies up!

      I think the guys are talented but I'm pretty biased!

  3. I remember that kind of music very well. It brings me back to the dances that I used to go to in my early teenage years. How I wanted a certain boy to ask me to dance with me to songs like that. It never happened but I kept dreaming that maybe someday he would notice me.

    1. Don't feel bad! I asked a certain boy to dance. We danced, we fell in love, we got married. I stopped dating, he didn't!

      Unrequited love is sometimes the best kind!

  4. Well that is cool. I am guessing this was out in the 50's. I was born in the 50's and this was the stuff growing up that my Aunt used to play. We would dance in her living room. She was only 12 when I was born so growing up she was like a big sister almost. I love this music.

    1. I was born in the 50's, too, and would dance with my aunt who was about 11 0r 12 when I was born! We used to dance in Grandma's living room and parlor. She taught me the Madison, the Shag and the Swing! When I was a teenager, she and I would put an album on (usually Paul Revere and the Raiders) and we would dance non-stop through the whole album! Great aerobics! p.s. My first name is Margaret!
