EASTSIDE VOCAL GROUPS - YOLANDA & THE NATURALS



Not much is know about Yolanda Campos and her group, The Naturals except that they may have hailed from Corona, California. In October of 1962 they released a single "My Memories Of You" and "Jambone".
"My Memories Of You" was a remake of the Harptones standard.
  According to Steve Propes book "LA R&B vocal groups 1945-1965", Yolanda was backed vocally and instrumentally by bassist Clyde "Skip" Battin & bassist Johnny Leonard whom producer Kim Fowley knew from Gene Norman's Crecendo Club.
  The single was released on the Kimley label (Kimley 923)
