The original members were Bobby Byrd (lead), David Ford, Curlee Dinkins and Willie Ray Rockwell. Rockwell was sometimes replaced by Clyde Tillis, and Ford sometimes sang lead. Their first paying gig was at Johnny Otis's Barrelhouse Club.

About The Hollywood Flames. This long-lasting Los Angeles doo wop aggregation had a very fluid personnel roster. Bobby Day was one of the group's founders in 1950, and the Hollywood Flames recorded prolifically for Hollywood, Specialty, Lucky, Swingtime, Money, and other labels before cutting their one major hit, the rocking "Buzz Buzz Buzz," in 1957 for Ebb Records. Earl Nelson, who was later half of Bob & Earl, sang lead on the tune, and some of their subsequent Ebb 45s were rocking novelties. Day went on to solo success with "Rockin' Robin," and the group managed one more chart item, "Gee," for Chess in 1961 with Donald Height as lead singer.
Interpret: The Hollywood Flames. Album titlle: John Dolphin Session (1955-61). Geschwindigkeit 33 U/min. Gee, their only release on Chess in 1961, turned out to be a R&B seller with new tenor Donald Height up front (he'd go on to minor soul stardom himself). 45s for Goldie, Coronet, Vee-Jay, and Symbol completed the Flames' massive discography. By then, Ford was the only original left; ex-Rainbows member John Berry had joined the group in 1962. Nelson liked duet partners named Bob, subsequently teaming with Bobby Relf. Still doing business as Bob & Earl, they hit in '63 with Harlem Shuffle
