The Four Pages (Long Island, New-York)
1962 - Autograph book / Much as i do (Plateau 101)
Charles Koppelman and Don Rubin along with Bob Meyer wrote and recorded, "Autograph Book" as The Four Pages for Plateau. A true New York sounding, up-tempo doo-wop number, complete with a cool sax break, this was the sole release by the group and the label, it garnered no chart action but it rocks! A click on the label to the left for a larger scan foretells the future, their first use of the soon to be famous Char-Don moniker.
It also demonstrated that besides still writing and singing, their eyes had already been opened to the business side of the music business. In Al Nevins and Don Krishner, two of the decades most successful and profitable entrepreneurs, they had met their ideal role models.
They were signed as writers to ALDON Music Inc. possibly the most famous and certainly the most evocative publishing name in music, their fellow writing partners included Goffin-King, Sedaka-Greenfield, Mann-Weil and many others.
Before, Rubin and fellow college friend Art Berkowitz had formed a vocal group The Ivy Three.
