The Jamies–“Summertime, Summertime”

Hello, thanks for checking out One-Hit Wonders today.  The Jamies were a pop vocal group from Dorchester, Massachusetts.  Members included Tom Jameson, his sister Serena Jameson, Jeannie Roy and Arthur Blair.

The Jamies recorded for the Epic Record label.  In August of 1958 their recording of SUMMERTIME, SUMMERTIME was released.  A good summer recording, light and up-tempo the record soon hit the Hot 100 where it reached #26 and remained on the chart for 11 weeks.  Several singles followed but none of them became hits.  In 1962 they re-released Summertime, Summertime and it hit again, reaching #38 on the Hot 100 with an 8 week stay on the chart.

Their hit record was sometimes described as Doo-Wop, but whether it’s Doo-Wop or Pop the Jamies hit remains a summer classic.

Sadly, Tom Jameson died in July of 2009 from cancer, at the age of 72.
