Interlude Era : Issue #15

The 3 D's : In 1954 Coral Records released "Heart of My Heart" by The 3 D's-Don Cornell, Johnny Desmond, and Alan Dale. They were three of the top post war male vocalists. During a dramatic moment in the tune each singer hits a line of the lyric in their own style-Cornell's blasting powerful baritone, Desmond's silky smooth delivery, and Dale's romantic crooning. In those 25 seconds, you can hear just a hint of what each singer possessed. Now we look at the life and times of the 3 D's.
