The Four J's

Profile:
Doo wop vocal harmony group from Philadelphia, USA.
Their original line up comprised of Joseph Pirollo a.k.a. Junior (lead), Joseph Paparella (second tenor), Joe Milaro (baritone) and James Testa (first tenor) but soon before they recorded in 1958 Joseph Paparella was replaced by Joseph Pirollo's brother in law Robert Finizio. In 1959 Joseph Pirollo and Robert Finizio became members of The Four Naturals and one year later in 1960 Robert P. Marcucci of Chancellor wanted a vocal group to back up Fabian (6) in the studio recordings and tours, so The Four J's became The Fabulous Four (3) with Joseph Pirollo, Robert Finizio, James Testa and Ernie Spano from another group that recorded at Chancellor, The Four Dates, Ernie Spano replaced Joe Milaro and backed Fabian (6) in several recordings, mostly uncredited, as well as back vocalists in Sonny Vito and Maureen Gray releases. In 1963 they renamed again themselves The Four J's adding Johnny October from The Four Dates in their line up, recording their biggest hit "By Love Possessed" at Jamie.
