First time for Al Wilson
as a "solo artist"? What group
was he with before?
Gotta know.

In 1961 Al Wilson was in a group called The Rollers, and had a song called The Continental Walk. On KFXM, it made it up to #15, nationally only to #80. So I guess Who Could Be Lovin' You was his first top ten ever. They also had two other songs that charted on KFXM, but not nationally.

I loved the song CONTINENTAL
WALK--always have. Such a great
great dance tune. I didn't know
AL Wilson was in the group.
Not suprised because they
were from San Bernardino.

Is he doing the lead on the song?
It sure sounds like it.

It was produced by Snuff Garret--big name in music back then.
No mention of Al WIlson on the 45
itself. I pulled out my original
Liberty copy.

I liked the song because it
was like having a learner's
permit for doing the Stroll.
Played it this morning and
enjoyed it 46 years later!
