The Trio recorded "Don't Sit Under The Apple Tree" b/w "The Girl Next Door ". "The Girl Next Door" was a Pick Hit on WHYN Springfield MA on May 4 1963. He released three albums for RCA during the '70s: a self-titled debut, James Lee Stanley Too, and Three's a Charm. He also recorded for MCA, Takoma, and Regency before forming his own Beachwood label for Live at McCabe's in the early '80s. He consistently released albums during the 1980s and '90s, and after Tork's Stranger Things Have Happened appeared on Beachwood, the duo began touring together. Two Man Band, released in 1995, was actually recorded live in the studio. Sister Pamala Stanley scored several dance/club hits from the late 1970s to the late 1980s.
