While Bud Johnson's parents encouraged them to be singers, the relative obscurity of the Chanters is due to the fact that their parents felt they were too young to be performers. They appeared only in the New York area and even then, not at any theaters or clubs. There was supposed to be a tour, but their well-meaning parents killed that too. While they were recording as the Chanters, they did background vocals for a progressive jazz album

The Chanters had an advantage: Bud's dad was well-known tenor saxman Budd Johnson. When the group was ready, the senior Johnson brought them to DeLuxe Records A&R man Andy Gibson, who supervised James Brown & The Famous Flames' Try Me (I Need You) (see Track 19). Gibson would be their producer at DeLuxe; Budd would lead the band. It didn't do much business, and The Chanters were dropped by DeLuxe (being too young to tour didn't help their cause). They masqueraded as The Voices Five on Morty Craft's self-named Craft logo in 1959 without Paige, who'd entered military service and was replaced by Bud, J. s cousin, Freddy Johnson. He led their interpretation of For Sentimental Reasons on Craft (Budd S. s instrumental All Alone sat on the flip). What resuscitated The Chanters' fortunes in 1961?
