“In The Still Of The Night” is one of the iconic doo-wop songs from the 1950s.
The Five Satins were a doo-wop/rhythm & blues vocal group from New Haven, Connecticut. Lead vocalist Freddie Parris plus Al Denby, Jim Freeman, Eddie Martin, and Jessie Murphy recorded their classic song in the basement of a local church.
“In The Still Of The Nite” was a beautiful ballad with lush harmonies and Parris’ vocal floating over everything.
The song may have only reached number 24 on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart, but has gone down in music history as one of the eternal songs of the early rock ‘n’ roll era.
