The Exciters - Song of the Week

The Exciters were from Jamaica, New York and had several hits, including the first and original version of Do Wah Diddy Diddy, later recorded by Manfred Mann.

They scored a Number One record with Tell Him and they also made what is now regarded as an early music video for the song. Shot on film and lip synced, Scopitone music films were a bit quirky with the visual theme, but are historical today. Here's what a unit looked like.
