The Gladiolas

Maurice Williams was the lead singer of this group. Later he’d be lead singer of Maurice Williams & The Zodiacs, who did Stay. They only had one hit, The Gladiolas, and it wasn’t much of a hit. I found it on the Doo Wop Box.

The Gladiolas:

Little Darlin’ – The original version of the song made famous by The Diamonds. It’s generally conceded that the Diamonds did a better job. I don’t know, I guess The Diamonds are more campy. This version just missed the top 40; The Diamonds’ reached number 2. From the spring of 1957.
