From his debut album, And Then Came Adam, Wade sent two songs up the charts. "Tell Her For Me" made it to #66, and "Ruby" fared a little better at #58. His follow up album, Adam And Evening, saw the song, "Gloria's Theme" check in on the charts at #74. Though his single releases fared far better than album cuts, Wade's albums were lush affairs with ornate arrangements and harmony-laden choruses courtesy of The Bel-Aire Singers. Unfortunately for Wade, towards the end of 1961, his most successful year, the principals at Coed dissolved their partnership necessitating a label switch by the singer.
