The Tymes

Donald Banks, Albert Berry, Norman Burnett, and George Hilliard were all native Philadelphians when in 1956 they formed their first group The Latineers. After several years of struggling on the "chitlin circuit" they seemed doomed to becoming nothing more than another "hitless" bar band.

In 1960 they decided that The Latineers, the name, might be holding them back and changed the formal group name to the catchy "Tymes." With the name change a decision to bring in a lead vocalist was made and George Williams won an audition for the less than coveted spot.

A few more years of "paying their dues" ensued and by 1963 they were a well established local band. Their moderate local success won them a coveted spot on Philadelphia's WDAS radio talent show in April 1963. An A&R man from Parkway Records happened to hear them, tracked them down and quickly signed them to a label deal. Within one month the group had already recorded several tracks for the label.
"So Much In Love" was released in May of 1963 and surprisingly shot to number one on Billboard's Pop chart.
There are those who say "So Much In Love" is the greatest pop ballad of all time. Many could tell you where they were the first time they heard that immortal "As we stroll along together" opening. This was the hit recording that The Tymes created their first time out – the classic that was the first record to replace The Beatles in the number one slot on the British charts.

"So Much In Love" went to Number One on Billboard in June of 1963. Their other most-requested chart toppers include "Wonderful, Wonderful," "Somewhere" and "You Little Trustmaker."

This is a group whose hits spanned the most exciting period in pop music, the mid-60's through the mid-70's. In addition to having hit records throughout the world, The Tymes' first two tours of England were smashing triumphs and a third tour set attendance records. Other European tours and television appearances took them to Holland, England, France, Germany and Italy.
