New York's songwriter and doo-wop vocalist
James Sheppard invented the "concept" album, except that it was not an album
but a series of 14 singles that told the story of a teenage romance. It started
with Crazy For You (1955),
the elegant Your Way (1956) and especially
A Thousand Miles Away (1956),
by Sheppard's first group, the Heartbeats,
followed by I Won't Be The Fool Anymore (1957),
500 Miles To Go (1957) and Down On My Knees (1958).
Shep and The Limelites, Sheppard's subsequent trio with no bass vocals,
resumed the saga with Daddy Home (1961), perhaps the most intricate,
and the end, I'm All Alone (1962).
