The Del Vikings

The Del-Vikings (also known as The Dell-Vikings) are an American doo-wop musical group, who recorded several hit singles in the 1950s, and continued to record and tour with various lineups in later decades. The group was notable for being one of the few racially integrated musical groups to attain success in the 1950s.

The battle for the group name went to court where a judge ruled that the Del Vikings name would be awarded to Mercury records along with any variants.
After most of the members left Dot, they signed on with Mercury Records. As a result, there were two sets of Del Vikings. Mercury Records owned the "Del" Vikings, and Dot Records owned the "Dell" Vikings. This action created a great amount of confusion in the music business.
Four out of the five members left the group because of being underage when they signed their contract with Fee Bee records. The only remaining member was Kripp Johnson.
After being turned away by many major record labels, The Del Vikings signed with Joe Auerbach's Fee Bee Records. He later would lease their signature tune "Come Go with Me" to Dot Records.
The original Del Vikings consisted of Clarence E. Quick, Bernard Robertson, Samuel Paterson, Don Jackson, and Corinthian "Kripp" Johnson.
