    Unfortunately, Larry D'Angelo was drafted into the army  before the Tones entered the studio to record the two songs. Sammy Rozzi replaced Larry. The Group recorded the two songs into the A.M.S. Recording Studio at 17th & Jackson in South Philadelphia and the single was released by Jaclyn in 1962. Shortly after the release of the single, the Tones broke up. It was minor hit in the Delaware Valley, getting plenty of action, especially on pop stations like WIBG. In 1963, Pelham Records reissued the single as by Little Sammy Rozzi & The Guys.
