Dear One

The Scarlets

The Scarlets were formed in 1953 by New Haven CT High School student Fred Paris. The members included Paris, Sylvester Hopkins, Bill Powers, Nate Mosley, and Al Denby. They recorded a tune that Fred had written called "Dear One" while still attending high school. The song was recorded on Red Robin Label in Harlem NY and became one of the early R&B hits to gain popularity across the nation. Fred Paris went on to form a group called "The Five Satins" whose hit song "In The Still Of The Night is an all time Rock and Roll Classic heard quite frequently on oldies stations some 50 years later (and is also the theme song for this website)
