The Skyliners

This Pittsburgh vocal group made a magnificent heartache ballad in 1959, "Since I Don't Have You." It remains among R&B's ultimate agonizing triumphs, and Chuck Jackson later did an equally gripping version. Jimmy Beaumont was the lead vocalist, with Janet Vogel, Wally Lester, Joe VerScharen, and Jackie Taylor. Beaumont, Taylor, and Lester had been in the Crescents, while Vogel and VerScharen were alumni of the El Rios. Their follow-up, "This I Swear," was a creditable effort that peaked at number 20 on the R&B charts, but few remember it. Oddly, "Since I Don't Have You" only reached number three on the R&B side and number 12 on the pop charts. But it's certainly one song for whom the numbers really don't come close to telling the story. The Skyliners had two chart singles on Callico and then had one other song reach the R&B Top 40 in 1965, "The Loser," for Jubilee. ~ Ron Wynn, Rovi

Skyliners were a cut above their peers! Very intricate harmonies, especially in the bridges, which I have been told were purposely arranged so other groups could not cover correctly, with parts cris-crossin g positions in the harmony. Plus Jimmy is one of the finest from the era, and his fans included Jackie Wilson, Sam Cooke and may noted RB singers!
Classic for all times, love it!!!!!!!!!! ! ! , nothing like the trash of today's.
good stuff great music will always be enjoyed
so many sweet memories RIP 5/5/2010
One of the greatest songs is Since I Don't Have You! this one can also be included in the mix. Great Group.RXH/rl h
Saw them live at the Roscoe, PA firehall circa 58-59. Fabulous! The greatest music comes from that era. Can anyone imagine humming Rap, Heavy Metal, Grunge, etc music 50 years from now?
