One of the first white groups to record rock and roll versions of black rhythm-and-blues hits, they had some success with such singles as 'Crazy 'Bout You Baby' (1954), 'Don't Be Angry' (1955), and 'Earth Angel' (1955). Their biggest hit, a version of the Chords' 'Sh-Boom,' was listed by Cashbox as the fifth most popular single of 1954. Before disbanding in 1964 the Crew-Cuts also made nine LPs for Mercury and Victor. Some of their hits were included in the anthology Solid Gold Rock 'n' Roll (2-Mer 61371/2).
