    Thanks to this recognition, they take the path of the studios and record two songs : "Highest Mountain" and a nice cover of Bruce Channel's hit, "Hey Baby". The single will be released by Fidelity out of Wichita Falls. Two months later a new single will be released by Fidelity, "Hey Good Lookin’" b/w "I Like It ". At some point their Fidelity 4051 was distributed by Milwaukee-based (and largely song-poem) lbl, Brosh, the only difference being a Brosh address sticker placed over the Fidelity name.
