The Triumphs - The Line up ? Okeh

Recommended Posts

I don't seem to be able to find out who were the members of the Triumphs on this site or the inter web (plenty of "what is my record worth?")

There must be plenty of members who know (unless they are keeping it secret for another book release or I have missed another thread) :)

Did they record for any other labels other than Okeh

The girl in the group is Delilah Kennebrew who went solo at Loma.

Not doubting you for a minute  ...  but I am curious where you obtained that information ?

What is now interesting and I hope you will agree, after some more digging this morning

is the potential relationship here with the B. Goodman credit and this info

Organ player Bennie Goodman went to LA on a gospel mission. Together with two of evangelist Bishop C.H. Whittaker’s sons, they formed the Triumphs. After Joe Westmoreland joined, and through the intervention of James Cleveland, the group was signed to VeeJay, just months after the label signed four Liverpool lads. Two Triumphs singles failed to catch on due to VeeJay's distracted promotional effort, and the group were gone.

Haha, I was asking you, if it is the same group, the one on Black Artists will be by far their rarest 45 for sure 

I think it has to be the same group as the writers and production are the same Bennie Goodman and Joe Peay
