    Biography :

    In 1958, five friends from Spanish Harlem (Lenny Montalvo, Eddie Sotolongo, Hector Santiago, Arnie Managrer, Joe Paredes received local attention from neighborhood teens when their record was heard on the radio. Their tune "Be Mine Again" was originally a Spanish Folk song.


    Lenny Montalvo and the guys decided to translate the Spanish lyrics into English but chose to leave the bridge part to be spoken in Spanish. An agent heard the group rehearse and invited them to 3D records in the Bronx. There they recorded two sides. "Be Mine Again" was lead by Lenny Montalvo which became the A side. "When in the World" was lead by Eddie Sotolongo which became the flip side.
