The Nutmegs were a 1950s American doo wop vocal group from New Haven, Connecticut. They are best known for their songs "Story Untold" and "Ship of Love," both released in 1955. They are best known for their songs "Story Untold" and "Ship of Love," released in 1955 and 1956, respectively. The quintet was led by tenor Leroy Griffin and was signed to Herald Records.

By 1954, the Nutmegs revised their hierarchy and Leroy Griffin switched over to lead, with Sonny Griffin now filling in as first tenor, Tyson (second tenor), Emery (baritone), and they added yet another Leroy, Leroy McNeil, for the bass vocals. Leroy Griffin's nephew Harold (Harry James, not the musician), would often sit in and listen, little knowing the part he would come to play in the group. By then, the Nutmegs had recorded four more sides, including a song called "Story Untold. Three of the four would eventually become the group's first singles for Herald, who opted to tack on the new name the Nutmegs for the first of these, "Story Untold," after the group decided on the name, telling Silver they were from Connecticut, the "nutmeg" state. In March 1955, "Story Untold" was released and leaped immediately into the R&B charts; by July, it was number two in the nation.
