Hi I'm looking at the form for the first time
Weldon Mc Dougal III told me about it I think this is fabulous, waiting to here from you guys,
I'm not in the business like I used to be but I'm still here, to start things off I used to be the leader of two groups back in the day, TheMedellons,we did
"I know" and the other group, was the Manhattens
"Live it Up" this was about 1954.
see you

Hi John and welcome to David and Lowell's Forum!

I'll dive straight in and ask is this the same Manhattens that sang 'The Feeling Is Mutual' on Big Mack records? If you look to the left of this page and click on 'Archives', there is a topic called '{big mack}' with some discussion of the label and a great picture of the recording studios.

Johnny Stiles was co-owner of Harthon Records in Philly with Weldon and Luther Randolph.
Everyone knows of Harthon and their contribution to the Northern scene and soul music in general.
