The Marcelles on Renown

The Marcelles

24018 - Ding-A-Ling, Act II

Richard Lucas and Charlie Williams
Renown Records & Publications BMI

 Renown 1024

Soul/funk from 1969 on Durham, North Carolina label. The label, started in 1957, had a dozen of releases until 1960 in a 100 series .  The most successful Renown releases from the period were by Wayne Handy, a rock 'n' roller who performed both up-tempo numbers and Elvis-type ballads. 

Renown Records seems to have been dormant during the most part of the sixties and was reactivated with a new 1000 series, all known releases being by country singers, with the exception of  The Marcelles.
