    Biography :

    Jim Clark, Myles Devine and Don Murray are the Chimes. Jim and Myles knew each other in Scotland. When they met again in Toronto, they formed a trio with Don. Composer Dick Taverner approached the boys with two songs, and they realized that the song were best suited to a girl lead singer.


    Leigh Bell met the trio at a party, and a new vocal quartet was born. Conway Twitty and his manager heard the group singing "Terry" at a record hop, and immediately recommended them to a leading Canadian record Label. Charted at #3 on the CHUM chart in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in January 1960. Released as a single around November 1959. In the US, this recording was not released as a single until April 1961. It did not chart in the US in Billboard.
