“Could This Be Magic” by The Dubs (1957)
The Dubs formed from the merging of two short-lived vocal groups in Harlem, New York, The Five Wings and The Scale-Tones. After some prompting by Richard Blandon when he showed up at a Scale-Tones’ rehearsal, a new group emerged. This included Blandon and his cousin Billy Carlisle from the Five Wings, and Cleveland Still, James “Jake” Miller and Thomas Gardner from the Scale-Tones.
