The Flares were a vocal group put together and managed by producer Buck Ram. They were built around their central figure, singer Aaron Collins. Many of their many members were also, at times, members of The Platters. (Aaron Collins September 3, 1930 – March 27, 1997). His sisters, Betty and Rose Collins, had a hit in 1956 called "Eddie My Love" as the Teen Queens.

Later in life, Collins had a ladies' shoe store in Los Angeles, California, located on the corner of Manchester and Vermont, and named Collins Shoe Closet, which was burned down in the Rodney King riots April 29, 1992.

The Flares biggest hit was the 1961 release "Foot Stompin' Part 1", which hit #20 on the Black Singles chart and #25 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was used on the soundtrack to the film ‘Hairspray’. Foot Stompin’ Pt 2 was an instrument by the same band but listed as The Ramrocks.

Don’t know what happened to that guy but this was his only significant LP. Lots of rumours about him just dropping out of the music scene in various scenerios.

From the Montreal and Ottawa area. Did a number of mostly folksong albums from the early 1960s till about the end of the decade. Had a following in various pockets of the USA and even did some recording down there. This song isn’t indicative of what they’re usually like on record – unfortunately.
