The Dolphins ‚ Carl Edmondson (bottom), Paul Singleton (middle), and Marv Lockard (top) ‚ That year, Edmondson, who was by then a successful record producer, booked time at the King Records studio and recorded his original song "Hey-Da-Da-Dow"with engineer Dave Harrison. He recruited Singleton and Lockard from the Seniors.
The song's pleasing melody and moderate tempo caught the ear of Harry Carlson, founder of fraternity Records. He released the record, and it received strong airplay across the tristate area. The record peaked on the Billboard pop chart at No. 69 on December 19, 1964, at a time when the British Invasion was in full swing.
"Unfortunately, 'Hey-Da-Da-Dow' was a turntable hit," Edmondson said. "that is it received airplay but not large sales. But the song has been remade by other artists over the years".
