The Ad Libs


American vocal group from Bayonne, New Jersey, founded in 1964.
The original Ad-Libs (Hugh Harris, Danny Austin, Dave Watt, Norman Donegan and Mary Ann Thomas), on Blue Cat Records (a subsidiary label belonging to Leiber/Stoller and George Goldner--Red Bird Records), traveled on the Dick Clark tour with Dionne Warwick and Chuck Berry. They also shared billings with Joe Tex, Little Anthony and the Imperials, as well as Del Shannon. But as subsequent recordings enjoyed less success, the group’s popularity faded and personnel began to change.
The new Ad-Libs were on AGP Records and consisted of Arthur Robinson, Irene Baker, Hugh Harris, Rose Myers and David Watt. Also joining the lineup was Chris Bartley. The group got involved with a highly talented and prolific writer/producer by the name of Van McCoy.
Arthur Robinson was chosen to sing the lead on the remake of a ballad by a former member of The Flamingos, Tommy Hunt, titled, “Human.”
