The Hollywood Flames were a doo-wop and R&B vocal group, who formed in Los Angeles in 1949 at a talent show where members of various high school groups got together.

The group remained active under a variety of names and with evolving line-ups through into the early 1960s, enjoying a major pop and R&B hit with Buzz Buzz Buzz in 1957, and with Bobby Day as featured singer had big hits as Bobby Day & The Satellites. With Robert Byrd (aka Bobby Day), David Ford, Gaynel Hodge and Earl Nelson as long serving key members among the changing personnel, they recorded variously as the Flames, Hollywood Four Flames, The Jets, The Question Marks, The Satellites, The Ebbtides, and The Turks, their records being released on an equally bewildering array of labels.

This 78-track set comprises most of their A- and B-sides of their releases under those names on the Selective, Unique, Fidelity, Specialty, Recorded In Hollywood, Spin, 7-11, Swing Time, Lucky, Aladdin, Money, Cash, Class, Ebb, Chess, Goldie and Coronet labels during these years. It features Buzz Buzz Buzz (pop No.11 and R&B No.5), Gee (R&B No.26), Rockin’ Robin (pop No.2 and R&B No.1) alongside pop chart entries Little Bitty Pretty One and Over And Over.

As a group whose music had to compete a dynamic and rapidly evolving market, it encompasses old school doo-wop, R&B, and in the later years rock ‘n’ roll, and this collection is joyful showcase for their versatility.
