THE VIDEOS (Queens, N.Y.)

Personnel:
Ronald Cussey (d) (lead), Clarence Bassett (1st tenor), Charles Baskerville
(2nd tenor), Johnny Jackson (baritone), Ron Woodhall (d) (bass).

Because the Videos placed second at the Apollo Theater's amateur night contest, they were awarded a recording deal with Philadelphia's Casino Records. The tune they recorded at their initial session with Casino was "Trickle, Trickle," which did well. Before they were able to record a follow-up to their second release for Casino, "Love Or Infatuation," two members had died. One was lead Ronald Cussey, who had previously sung lead for the legendary Five Sharps on Jubilee. This marked the end of the Videos'
singing career. Bassett also sang with the Five Sharps and later teamed up with Charles Baskerville and James Sheppard to form Shep & The Limelites.
