The Sensations formed in 1954, comprised Yvonne Mills Baker, Tommy Wicks, Alphonso Howell, Hosea Haralson and were from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They started as “The Cavaliers”, soon changing to “The Sensations”. The group had two hits on the US R&B chart in 1956 with Atco “Yes Sir That’s My Baby” and “Please Mr. Disc Jockey” on “Atco” records. By 1957 they were managed by Kae Williams. The group disbanded soon afterwards, and lead singer Yvonne Mills married and started a family.  In 1961, bass singer Alphonso Howell persuaded Yvonne Mills Baker that the group should reform, and they won a contract with “Chess” records subsidiary “Argo” records . They had a hit with a version of “Music, Music, Music”, which reached number 12 on the R&B chart and number 54 on the Billboard Hot 100. A few months later, they released the tune “Let Me In” which reached number 2 on the R&B chart and number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. Later releases were less successful and the group broke up.
Yvonne Baker later started a solo career, recording a number of tracks that achieved cult status. This disc from 1962 has some light, superficial scuffs to the vinyl, conservatively graded in VG++ conditon
