THE FOUR TEMPS (Fox Records)

I receive a request about a group named The Four Temps present in The Complete Book Of Doo Wop...

In 1958 black singer/guitarist Pee Wee Crayton recorded one single in the Fox label with the sides_Give Me One More Chance/Look Up And Live.

This recording is listed in the doo wop guides with two different names by THE FOUR IMPERIALS and by PEE WEE CRAYTON with ESTHER  and THE FOUR TEMPS in The Complete Book Of Doo Wop and only by THE FOUR IMPERIALS in the Kreiter's guide.

The Four Temps(above pic)) were the white group know as The Four Imperials(see in this blog) who recorded for labels as Chant,Lorelei or Twirl Records.

Esther was Pee Wee's wife(see below picture).

The A Side_Give Me One More Chance. is a vocal group side credited in the disc to PEE WEE CRAYTON with ESTHER and THE FOUR TEMPS.
