    Tony & The Daydreams recorded many demos before they can pretend to record a single. "Why Don't You Be Nice" and "I’ll Never Tell "  were finally recorded and the sides were quickly picked up for release by Planet, a small New York City label.

    This small label was the first to release the first two titles of a new Queens band whose name their name was taken from the Lincoln Capri : The Capris. The songs were "There's a Moon out Tonight" and Indian Girl". Unfortunatly for Planet, it was not able to effectively promote the record and it became an almost instant obscurity. Planet The label will bet on Tony & The Daydreams and release several singles that unfortunately will not break the New York market.
