    They recorded two other songs for Tri-Dec : "Talking About It," by Green and "Devil Congo Drums," by Ralph Steward. Unfortunately these two titles will never be released. In addition to over 10 original numbers the Dreamers do many current hits, such as "At The Hop" "Daddy Cool" and "Get A Job."  In early 1959, Ralph Steward wrote "It's Gonna Be All Right" and "Don't Cry" who were issued in 1959 on Nuggett Records, a Tampa label owned by Lonzo and Oscar,  once a popular country act. A third single will be released the same year on the Dream Label with two new titles written by Ralph "Seconds" and "Mama Lucie."
