The Essex - Voice Your Choice

The Essex had an interesting way of becoming a singing group. They met when they were all members of the U.S. Marine Corps based at Camp LeJeune, North Carolina. While only three are shown in the photo, there were in fact five members: the terrific lead vocalist Anita Humes, and Walter Vickers, Rodney Taylor, Billy Hill, and Rudolph Johnson. Their debut single reached the mighty Number One spot on the charts, quite a feat.

This week on Treasure Island Oldies, Voice Your Choice features The Essex with two of their three charted hit songs: A Walkin' Miracle and Easier Said Than Done. Cast your vote for the song you'd like to hear at the Voice Your Choice page.

We'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
