Comments : Produced from an original 45 rpm acetate. Great doo wop jump, male lead w/ group vocal background. It took the digital age to achieve pressing-quality restoration of the studio reference disc. This song (and its flipside) were one of a few "mystery tunes" played via cassette copy at local Pittsburgh dances during the 60's, and could be heard nowhere else! Although the song was originally thought to be a previously unreleased work by THE Columbus Pharaohs we've learned that it was recorded by an unknown band and vocal group. Nevertheless, the music stands on its own merit and authenticity and we're pleased that we can offer another original vinyl recording that's available... Nowhere else!
