    Welton Young, a former member of The King Toppers, teamed up with Brenda Lee Jones (later Brenda Lee Nelson) to form the duo of “Dean & Jean.”  They recorded for Buckeye, Ember and the Laurie subsidiary Rust, from late 1958 through 1966, and had some Pop chart hits

     

    Their debut was We're Gonna Get Married for Buckeye in 1958. Their first record for Allen Sussel's Rust label, he also ran the Andie, Emge, and Laurie imprints, was Dance The Roach # 5044.

    Dean & Jean

    They eventually issued something like nine releases on the label and had a minor hit with the third Tra La La La Suzy, the above was their fourth. (“Tra La La La Suzy” went to #35 and “Hey Dean, Hey Jean” made it to #32).
