Album Notes and Credits
Liner Note Author: Kingsley Abbott.
While Sixty Minute Man is a good 16-song compilation of Billy Ward & the Dominoes' early-'50s Federal sides, it's not clear why it's necessary when all 16 songs appear on Rhino's slightly superior (and similarly titled) Sixty Minute Men: The Best of Billy Ward & His Dominoes. The Rhino anthology adds four other tracks, including their comic "Can't Do Sixty No More" (a kind of postmortem for "Sixty Minute Man") and their 1957 hit "Star Dust," though perhaps this Rev-Ola compilation will be easier to find in the U.K. On its own merits, this CD does collect the group's most important and popular work, including the huge and hugely influential 1951 hit "Sixty Minute Man." There are also other R&B smashes like "Do Something for Me," "Have Mercy Baby," "I Am With You," and "That's What You're Doing to Me," along with the almost ludicrously over-the-top weepy melodrama of "The Bells." It was a crucial body of work in laying some of the foundations for rock & roll, both in how the vocal group arrangements pioneered doo wop, and in how these sides gave Clyde McPhatter his first opportunity to shine on record prior to his success with the Drifters and as a solo artist. ~ Richie Unterberger
