About The Ink Spots

Vocal quartet the Ink Spots were a major influence on 1950s doo-wop. Their beginnings were in Jerry & Charlie, the Indianapolis duo formed by Jerry Daniels and Charlie Fuqua (uncle of the Moonglows' Harvey Fuqua). By 1934, they had evolved into the Ink Spots. They began recording in '35, but it was only after Williams left and was replaced by Bill Kenny that the group really took off. Their first big hit was 1939's "If I Didn't Care," and the hits kept coming through the mid-'40s, including "The Gypsy" and "Do I Worry." An endless series of personnel changes began in 1944, but the group kept working for another 10 years until Kenny finally called it quits. Numerous knockoffs claiming (usually falsely) to contain original members proliferated throughout subsequent decades.
