Diamonds and Pearls Paradons (Milestone, 1960)

The Paradons were an American doo wop group that secured a recording session with Milestone Records where they recorded 8 songs. Their debut single, Diamonds and Pearls, hit #27 on the Black Singles chart and #18 on the Hot 100. They went on to appear on American Bandstand and at the Apollo. Unfortunately, after several disagreements about money, the Paradons had broken up by 1961.

Milestone continued to release the singles from the initial recording session, but the singles failed to chart.
