Christmas In Jail (Video)

The Youngsters doo wop group

Here's a fun novelty song by The Youngsters, a West Coast doo wop group that formed at Manual Arts High School  in Los Angeles in 1955.

It's called "Christmas In Jail" and was released in 1956 as the flip side of "Dreamy Eyes." More about The Youngers at ColorRadio.com. You can check out the video of Dreamy Eyes here.

"The Youngsters didn't make much of a dent in the Los Angeles R&B scene," notes Marv Goldberg, "in spite of having some half-dozen releases (under four different group names)." But man, they had a fun sound.
