This long-lasting Los Angeles doo wop aggregation had a very fluid personnel roster. Bobby Day was one of the group's founders in 1950, and the Hollywood Flames recorded prolifically for Hollywood, Specialty, Lucky, Swingtime, Money, and other labels before cutting their one major hit, the rocking "Buzz Buzz Buzz," in 1957 for Ebb Records. Earl Nelson, who was later half of Bob & Earl, sang lead on the tune, and some of their subsequent Ebb 45s were rocking novelties. Day went on to solo success with "Rockin' Robin," and the group managed one more chart item, "Gee," for Chess in 1961 with Donald Height as lead singer. ~ Bill Dahl
