Someone recently asked about an album they had found by the Titans from
Pottsville or Pottstown, Pa.
I accidently deleted the message, and do not remember who requested the
I have a 10" record album by a group called the Titans. Don't know if
it is the same group/record or not.
The one I have is titled Mad Melodies featuring the Titans of the Hill
That's a Plenty
After You've Gone
As Long As I Live
Sweet Georgia Brown
The band was formed in 1951 by Dan Titus drums and included:
Fred Waring II trombone
Al Hayes cornet
Mike Mallory guitar
Jon Logan clarinet
Bruce Carrick sax
The liner notes are not very clear as to whether this recording had Dan
Titus or Pete Helmintoller on drums.
I talked to Al Hayes last night. Al said the Hill School was in
Pottstown, Pa so hopefully this is the same group.
