Billy-Ward-and-His-DominoesBilly Ward and the Dominoes was one of the most popular and influential groups of the early 1950s. Members at one time included legends like Clyde McPhatter and Jackie Wilson. Their hit “Sixty-Minute Man” from 1951 is considered to be the first Rhythm & Blues single to also make the pop charts which were then dominated by white singers and groups. The 10-inch album “Billy Ward & His Dominoes,” released on Federal records in 1954, is worth up to a staggering $15,000.00 today.
