The Viscaynes - The Viscaynes & Friends

Formed in Vallejo, California in the 1950s, The Viscaynes were a doo-wop group who are said to be the first recorded project of Sylvester Stewart (aka Sly Stone), and the launching point of his career. The group gained notoriety with a performance on Dick Stewart’s Dance Party, after which they were introduced to producer George Motola. Charting on KYA radio’s Top 60 chart in 1961, “Yellow Moon” became a hit for the Viscaynes, though they split up around the time of the song’s popularity. The Viscaynes & Friends is the first official full-length release from the group.
