Kal Mann did not love rock and roll…..

Kal Mann & Dave Appell

He emerged from an earlier time with different tastes in music.  According to the author of “The Twist, The Song and Dance That Changed The World”, Jim Dawson, (Cameo-Parkway label owners) “Kal Mann, Bernie Lowe and even Dave Appel never full concealed their contempt for rock and roll, the Twist, or the gullible youngsters who bought their records.  Mann admitted that while writing some of (Chubby) Checker’s  songs he was thinking of of vaudevillian Eddie Cantor, whom he considered to be the cat’s meow, if not the bee’s knees.

Kal Mann was born in May of 1917 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Kalman Cohen.  He started off writing comedy for Red Buttons and Danny Thomas among others.  Mann migrated toward composing pop songs and hit it big in the summer of 1957 when he and co-writer Bernie Lowe composed “Teddy Bear” for Elvis Presley a song selected as the “B” side of “Loving You”, but one that quickly outdistanced the “A” side by rising to the number one spot in the U.S. and remaining there for seven weeks after being featured in the Presley motion picture also titled “Loving You”.

Mann and Lowe Hit the Big Time

Bernie Lowe

The writer team next composed another biggie, “Butterfly” which was first recorded by Cameo’s Charlie Gracie, an artist who Mann and Lowe signed in order to secure their own “Presley”.  Gracie’s version rose quickly to number one in the country in the Spring of 1957 but was topped slightly by a version recorded by Andy Williams – which peaked also at number 1 for three weeks that same Spring.

I personally always equated Gracie’s tune with the “Hit Parade” era of songs even though Charlie was considered a ‘rock-a-billy’ artist.  Gracie was dispatched less than a year after his big success, having only recorded five singles for Cameo.  His Cameo follow-up to Butterfly was called “Fabulous” and reached a respectable number 16.

His final charting record , also on Cameo, was “I Love You So Much It Hurts”, petering out at a lowly number 71.  It would be Gracie’s final appearance on the charts.  He departed on less than friendly terms, forced to file a lawsuit against Cameo for “Butterfly” royalties.

When the tune called “The Twist” came the way of the Cameo-Parkway boys via mainly the Dick Clark route, they, along with a new third partner, band lead Dave Appell, jumped on the opportunity arranging, and producing a game changing record (see my Twist Post).

The Cameo/Parkway “Elvis” – Charlie Gracie

Dave Appell was born in March of 1922  also in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania David Appell.  His career started with bands during his time in the U.S. Navy.  His first group after the military service was “The Dave Appell Four” before becoming “The Applejacks”.  He made an appearance with his group in the motion picture “Don’t Knock the Rock” before doing an extended gig in Las Vegas.  From there Appell returned to his home in Philadelphia and secured his position as a man of many talents at Cameo.

His Applejacks set the stage at Cameo-Parkway for becoming the “Happy Dance” record label with three consecutive dance oriented tunes, all safely conservative and a bit old-fashioned to the liking of Lowe and Mann, but not turning completely away from the teenage market, “Mexican Hat Rock” (16, Fall 1958), “Rocka-Conga” (#38, late 1958) and “The Bunny Hop” (#70, early 1959) a song which had originally charted for Ray Anthony in 1952 reaching number 13.

I remember often doing the Bunny Hop and the Mexican Hat Rock at sock hops in the late 1950’s and dusting those same tracks off for revival sock hops in the 1970’s.  People would forget the “Mexican At Rock” steps (really silly to see a bunch of Gringos doing this) but “The Bunny Hop was quite timeless, and another “fun for all ages” dance.  (Like the Twist, you could almost expect a good side ache to develop if you overdid the hops.

It was a very rewarding dance when you could position yourself behind a  girl you may have fancied, securing your hands on her hips – all innocent stuff.

Chubby Then and Now

Leading up to the Twist days, Cameo/Parkway did experiences some successes including those displayed below, but after the Twist, the label found it’s groove.

Back to the “Happy Dance” labels.  After the explosive success of “The Twist”, Lowe and Mann and Appell just kept going to the well with the teen dance tracks, coupled with the ongoing boost of their efforts by disc spins by Dick Clark on his highly rated afternoon show in Philly, as well as many personal appearances by Cameo-Parkway artists, many of who were not only Philadelphia residents but even lived very near by the American Bandstand studio set (Rydell and Checker were often beckoned to run down to the studio with only a moment’s notice to fill in for an absent act).

The Applejacks

And so Chubby would feed the Happy Dance pipeline, followed by Dee Sharp (who made her debut recording at the young age of 16 providing the duet vocals on Chubby Checker’s “Slow Twistin'” although not credited on the single.  Dee Dee (real name Dionne LaRue) would quickly enter the studio on her own to record “Mashed Potato Time” (also composed by Mann and Lowe) – her debut single which would be her biggest hit – reaching number 2 and selling over a millions copies.

Rydell would join the Happy Dance hit parade contributing “Sway”, “The Fish”, “I’ll Never Dance Again” (not so happy), and his number 10 hit “The Cha-Cha-Cha” (composed by Mann and Appell) and one of my favorites.  The Dovells dove in with “The Bristol Stomp”,  “Hully Gully Baby” and others composed by Mann and Appell as well.  For the Orlons it would be “Wahwatusi”, “The Cross Fire” (yep – Mann and Appell) and a few others.

The dance tunes would continue throughout 1962 into 1963 before staring to fritter out, giving way to a stab at something more approaching the rock moods of the middle 1960’s with songs by England’s Ivy League, and then American group Terry Knight and the Pack and ? and the Mysterians – good stuff, but not enough to sustain the label.

The End of a Checkered Past

In 1967 Cameo/Parkway became an MGM subsidiary label and a few more records were released.  The label began combining the two names onto a new logo.   Then in quick order, the labels were picked up by ABKCO which was owned by Alan Klein.  A third label which was part of the Cameo/Parkway family, Vando – was picked up by Bell Records in the Fall of 1967 and in September of that year – Cameo/Parkway was no more.

Kal Mann died on November 28th, 2001.  Bernie Lowe passed away on September 1st, 1993 and Dave Appell on November 18th, 2014.

As for Checker, the hits dried up by 1965 and his career was basically finished.  He ended his career performing and touring through Europe.  He occasionally continued to record and entered the Adult Contemporary Charts in 2008 scoring a number one hit with “Knock Down the Walls”.

In 2002 Chubby became an activist staging a protest outside the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, due to not being an inductee into those hallowed halls (if I was Chubby I would just say “don’t need it!”).

Early Cameo Hits – BC (Before Chubby)

Cameo 116 – Timmie “Oh Yeah!” Rogers –  “Back to School Again” – October 10th, 1957 – #36 Billboard Hot 100

Cameo 117 – The Rays – “Silhouettes” b/w “Daddy Cool” – October 14th, 1957 – #3 Billboard Hot 100

(Actually charted for a few weeks as a double sided hit)

Cameo 126 – The Storey Sisters – “Bad Motorcycle” – March 3rd, 1958 – #45 Billboard Hot 100

The Storey Sisters were initially “The Twinkles” releasing their hit on Peak – without notice

Parkway 804 – Chubby Checker – “The Class” – May 18th, 1959 – #38 Billboard Hot 100

Chubby was an impersonator/imitator as witnessed on this early pre-twist single, and actually used that talent to mimics Hank Ballard on his break out sound-a-like which even initially fooled Ballard upon first listen.

Parkway Record Label Long Play Discography

The Parkway label began in 1958 and is displayed ahead of the big brother label, Cameo, due to the presence of franchise artist Chubby Checker.  Parkway was the company’s ‘teen oriented label’ more so than Cameo which tried to venture back to the tastes of the label owners – Lowe and Mann.
